1/2 c. butter
2 c. flour
2 t. sugar
4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cream of tarter
2/3 c. milk
Put all dry ingredients in a bowl with room temperature butter (margarine occasionally) Combine all ingredients using a fork (or pastry cutter) to cut the butter into the dry ingredients. Continue until the butter is at least pea size. Add the milk and continue to cut with a fork until barely moist. Drop onto baking sheets sprayed with Pam, and bake at 450* for 10-12 min.
For Garlic Cheese Biscuits:add 1/2 c. cheddar cheese to mix (or more - the more the better, right?). When cooked, brush on 1/4 c. melted butter combined with 1/4 t. garlic powder.
Okay, so my secret is to touch them as little as possible before baking. That's the only way to make them flakey!
This recipe came from Erin Behme, we had a girls night out and she made bisquits and gravy for us the next morning and these were divine!
