So many meals are made better with biscuits but after making the meal, you want a simple, guaranteed recipe that will be a hit with everyone without too much fuss. These could easily replace your staple box of Bisquick! Enjoy!

Simple Flaky Biscuits

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4lb (1 stick) of butter (super cold!!)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • Egg for egg wash

Combine dry ingredients in bowl of electric mixer. Add cold chopped butter and mix on low until butter is pea-sized. Chunks of butter = flaky biscuit.

Add milk/cream {if you don’t have cream, just add 3/4 cup milk, half and half or whatever you have}. Mix on low until just comes together.

Working quickly so butter chunks don’t melt, roll out and use a metal cookie cutter (we like hearts) to cut out 2 1/2” shapes about 1/2” thick. Mix egg with a tbsp of water and brush on the tops of the biscuits.

Bake at 375 deg F. Arrange on pan and bake until bottoms are golden brown.
