This is one of my favorite homemade biscuit recipes. It is from Jenny's Country Kitchen Making Homemade A Little Easier!
4 1/2 C. all-purpose non-bleached flour
2 T baking Powder
1 1/2 t salt
2 T sugar
2 sticks butter (1cup), softened, not melted
2 C. milk
Heat oven to 425. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until small pea-size pieces form. Mix in the milk to form a soft ball.
On lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 1 min. Pat into a circle about 3/4 inch thick. Cut the dough with a large biscuit cutter or a cup works fine.
Place the desired amount of biscuits on a baking sheet 1 inch apart. Bake about 15 min. or until golden brown.
Next place some wax paper on a baking sheet and place the rest of the biscuits. Set in freezer for 1 hour or until frozen. Then take them out and put them in a labeled freezer bag. These will stay up to 6 months. This recipe makes around 2 doz. depending on the size of biscuits you like.
To bake the frozen biscuits: Heat your oven to 400. Place the frozen biscuit on a baking sheet and bake for 20 min.
Serving suggestion: Tonight we had these with Chicken Tortellini Soup. We spread with butter and homemade strawberry jam and some used honey.
