I want to first say I am not a very accomplished baker so making the perfect biscuits is a challenge I'm ready to take...here's a recipe and technique you just may want to try....

  • 2 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/3 Cup VERY COLD Butter
  • 1 Cup VERY COLD Milk

Preheat oven to 450 (yes, that hot)

Mix the powder ingredients first, then add the tiny chunks of butter (or mix in a food processor). Add liquid last.

Here's the Secret.....

I just chopped my cold butter up with a knife... there were big chunks of butter. The less you knead it the better, after adding liquid you gently mix, then gently knead minimally— that’s the secret!!!!
