Servings 9 biscuits
13 x 9 sheet pan
Pastry Dough Cutters
Quarter Sheet Baking Mat
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 tbls baking powder
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 tbls butter, unsalted cut into thin slices
- 3/4 cup milk, whole or 2%
Preheat oven to 425° and prepare a 13" x 9" baking pan with a Silpat sheet or parchment paper.
Cut the cold butter into thin slices and place in the refrigerator to rechill
In a large bowl add the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt and mix to combine
Drop the cold butter slices into the flour mixture and toss to coat. Using your fingers rub the butter into the flour to make small flake pieces. You can also use a pastry cutter for this. Make sure not do overdo this, you want to be able to see the butter pieces.
Pour the milk into the flour/butter mixture and stir until just combined.
Gently need the dough to bring all the ingredients together.
Turn the dough out on a lightly floured board and shape and with your hands shape the dough into a circle or rectangle to a 1/2" to 3/4" thickness
Using a 2" or 3" round cutter cut the dough into as many biscuits as possible. Gently gather the scraps of dough and push them together to cut the remaining biscuits. If you pat the dough into a rectangle you can cut the dough in squares with a knife which results in no scrapes.
Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter and bake for 15-18 minutes.
There serving size will vary depending on the size of cutter you use and how large you pat out the dough.
Unbaked biscuits can be frozen. Place the cut out unbaked dough on a try and freeze. Once frozen place the dough in a freezer bag. To bake, place the frozen dough on a cookie sheet and bake at 425 degrees for 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
