Mama's ' Bestest' Biscuits
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
4 ingredients
9-12 servings
My kids named 'em this 'cuz they is so good! LOL Great with soups, stews, jams, jellies or just by themselves. Who ever said homemade was hard just didn't know Mama! Extra note: Edited 3/07 to answer questions and help you make these come out perfectly. You can even add garlic powder and cheese to make those 'famous restaurant type' biscuits, BUT BETTER. Edited 8/08 to add yes these are basic biscuits. To add additional flavor try adding in herbs and seasonings as stated in the previous edit above. Onion powder, garlic powder, fresh cracked black pepper, herbs like oregano or rosemary. You could even brush the top with melted butter when done baking or add some Butter Buds or Molly McButter if you like. This also doubles very easily. and again 11-08 This dough is very wet and sticky. Make sure your hands are well floured and gently press into shape to knead- do not knead vigorously, you will have a mess. Gently pat and use a kneading motion to gently fold the dough into itself and form into a square shape.
