Homemade Biscuits


2 cups flour
1 tbsp. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup shortening (butter)
1 beaten egg
2/3 cup milk


In food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Add shortening and cut it into the flour mixture.

Add the egg and stir into the flour mixture. (Everything up to this point I did in the food processor). Turn out onto a floured board and knead 20 strokes. Roll out to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut into rounds.

Bake on an ungreased sheet in a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes.

Tip: For soft biscuits, crowd together on sheet, for crisp biscuits, leave space between them!


  1. I was just looking for a good homemade biscuit recipe to go with some soup that I have. Perfect! Thanks :)
