Makin’ Biscuits

Way down here in the heart of the south, we love our biscuits. Probably too much.

Freshly made right in the kitchen and served hot out of the oven, we especially love our biscuits with a side of homemade sausage gravy drizzled poured over the top. =]

This particular round of biscuits was made for dinner. We love to do the occasional breakfast-for-dinner treat, and this past Friday night, biscuits and gravy was what we decided to make. YUMM-O!

If you are up for an enjoyable time in the kitchen and a taste of the south in your own home, I thought you might enjoy trying our favorite biscuit recipe:


Homemade Baking Powder Biscuits (from the Betty Crocker Cookbook)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk

Heat oven to 450^ F. In medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening, using two knives or a pastry blender until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk until dough leaves side of bowl (dough will be soft and sticky). Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. Roll or pat dough into circle about 1/2 thick. Cut with floured 2- to 2-1/4 biscuit cutter (or glass- whatever you have on hand will work). Place biscuits on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately with plenty of butter, and either jelly or gravy. Enjoy.


Happy biscuit makin’ to you and yours. =]

  1. Those look so authentically homemade and so yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Sometimes you just have to go back to those tried and true recipes books. I still have my Betty Crocker and Better Homes and Garden ones I got for my wedding shower 45 years ago. I still go to the Betty Crocker one for my favorite trusted-and-true, never-fail pie crust.

  2. Thank you, Mrs Colle! We too love our Betty Crocker cookbook! It’s our go-to book for several recipes. We’ve got a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that belonged to my grandmother, but I haven’t looked through it yet to see how the recipes are. =]

    Thank you for stopping by and I hope your recovery continues to go smoothly! =]


I would love to hear from you! =]
