Biscuits, the good old fashioned way!


Nothing smells more delicious in the morning than bacon and freshly baked biscuits from scratch! I remember the immediate feeling of exuberance when I would wake up in the morning to those two smells. I knew grandma was in the kitchen making her homemade biscuits and gravy from scratch! Here is the recipe for the biscuits. =) Enjoy ❤


-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoons sugar
-1 tablespoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon salt
-8 tablespoons butter, cubed
-3/4 cup milk

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut in butter until it begins to look like cornmeal. Make a well with flour mixture and 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.

      I think they are delicious too. In fact, swap out some fat for some bacon drippings and bacon pieces and you have a VERY delectable (yet totally unhealthy) biscuit! haha
