Step 3: Final Product
Yum yum yum. Serve warm or at room temperature with butter, jam, or jelly.
The actual recipe is as followed:
2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup milk
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Butter or line a baking sheet.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a fork, pastry blender, or 2 table knives, combine the butter and flour mixture until it resembles a coarse meal. Slowly add the milk, stirring with a fork, to the desired consistency.
3. Turn the dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface and gently knead just to bring the dough together. Carefully roll out the dough about 3/4 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or sturdy glass, cut about 12 biscuits, rerolling any scraps. Place on the lined baking sheet. Bake the biscuits for 13 to 15 minutes (add 3 to 4 additional minutes for frozen ones), until golden brown. Cool slightly and serve warm.
