Description

These easy, homemade biscuits are soft, buttery, and made completely from scratch.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup organic milk
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups whole wheat white flour (plus extra for cutting board)
  • 2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into pieces
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly chopped herbs like chives, rosemary, or sage (optional)
  • 1/4 cup cheddar, shredded (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Combine milk and lemon juice and set aside for five minutes.
  3. Whisk or sift together dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt) If using herbs, add now.
  4. With a fork, (or pastry cutter if you roll like a baker) cut in butter to flour until mealy. It should look crumbly.
  5. If adding cheese, fold in now.
  6. Mix in milk until just combined. Do not over mix.
  7. Flour a cutting board and place dough on board in a heap. Press down to flatten or use a rolling pin to quickly roll out. I just use my hands to press down to about 3/4 inch thick.
  8. Use a drinking glass to cut out biscuits. Keep working dough and cutting until gone. The last bit of dough is perfect for using as a taste tester.
  9. Place biscuits on a baking sheet and let sit for five minutes. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until golden. Serve warm.
