Hand-Shaped Biscuits


I’m a huge biscuit fan, but really who isn’t? Flaky or homestyle or pillowy, whichever way you have it or describe it as, I love them.

Sausage and gravy is an old favorite in my home. I make it a few times a month to feed an army or just my boyfriend and I, and this hearty biscuit recipe is perfect to soak up gravy.

I’m not sure how to gauge how much to list this recipe as since I’m positive that everyone already has all the ingredients in their household. I’ll just leave the costs out of this one.

Ingredients for 10 biscuits:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons of very cold butter
  • ¾ to 1 cup whole milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well and then cut in the cold butter using your fingers. Then gradually pour in the milk in quarter-cup intervals. You may not need the whole cup, just enough for the dough to form. It shouldn’t be too wet.

Knead for a minute inside the bowl. Then divide dough into 10 pieces and form into balls. They should be about 2 ½ to 3 inches in diameter. Place the pieces 3 inches apart from each other onto a greased baking sheet. Flatten the pieces to about ½ inch thickness. Bake for 12 minutes.

Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing.
