Paula Deen’s Biscuits Are Easy As Pie

October 22, 2011

There are certain things I shy away from cooking because I know I am not any good at them.  One of these items is anything concerning bread.  Not banana breads, or items like those, but loaves of bread.  I have tried to make homemade bread in the past along with pizza dough, and the results have been disastrous and hard as rocks.

This morning I decided to face my demon and attempt a bread based foe, homemade biscuits.  Making biscuits usually entails grabbing a bag of Mary B’s out of the freezer and throwing some onto a pan and into a preheated oven.  Today I grabbed the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and butter.

To increase my chances of a successful outcome I used one of Paula Deen’s recipes.  It was very easy and after letting them bake for 12 minutes or so I was met with fluffy perfectly cooked biscuits! We topped them with some of Becky’s milk gravy and they were delicious.

– 2 c. flour
– 1 tsp. sugar
– 1 tbs. baking powder
– 1 tsp. salt
– 8 tbs. butter
– 3/4 c. milk

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut butter into mixture until it begins to look like cornmeal.

Make a well with flour mixture and slowly add milk into the middle. Knead dough with your fingers and add milk when necessary. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with small biscuit cutter.

Butter bottom of skillet and place biscuits in pan. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
