My sister made the most amazing biscuits for Beautiful Creatures party and my mom made this super tasty fried chicken for part of our Chinese New Years feast (she dosed it in sweet and sour sauce) and I have been craving those two dishes like a crazy girl (minus the chicken sauce) and finally I got them to indulge me.
It turns out the biscuits are super fast and easy to make so took a few pictures while she whipped up a batch.
World’s Best Quick Biscuit Recipe
- 2 C All Purpose Flour
- 1 TBS Baking Powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 TBS sugar
- 1/2 C shortening (chilled)
- 1 C milk (chilled)
Preheat the oven to 425 F. Mix the dry ingredients. Cut in cold shortening. Slowly stir in milk. Press the dough into a rectable and then fold in thirds on top of itself and press into rectangle (try to transfer as little heat as you can so do it fast). Cut into shapes and back for 12-15 minutes.
