I did a lot of research on what makes the perfect homemade biscuit and in my opinion I found the secret ingredient.

I have been trying to perfect the old fashion "grandmas homemade biscuit" my boyfriend constantly longs for and on a scale of 1-10 he said my biscuits turned out to be an 8. I consider that a 10, nobody can ever replace grandmas cooking, there are smells and memories I will never be able to replicate. An 8 is a 10 in my book.

The ingredients are;

2 cups of all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 tablespoon of granulated sugar

6 tablespoons of unsalted butter (the colder the better)

1 teaspoon of salt

3/4 cup of whole milk

The secret ingredient turns out to be the butter and how it is prepped. I froze the butter before prepping it and then used a cheese grater to separate it for mixing

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line the cookie sheet with non-stick parchment paper.

Combine baking powder, flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl

Keep butter in the freezer until ready to add to mix. Use a cheese grater to grate the butter into medium sized shreds and add to your flour mixture

Add milk and stir until combined, but don't over-mix your dough

Gently work your dough together on a well floured surface, add flour as needed if it gets sticky and hard to manage. Work your dough over itself and flatten, repeat about 5 or 6 times but be certain not to over work your dough. This will ensure flaky layers

Using a round cookie cutter, cut your biscuits until all the dough has been made into biscuits.

Place on your prepped cookie sheet at least 1/2 inch apart

Cook at 425 for 10 to 12 minutes or until biscuit tops are just golden brown.

Makes 6 biscuits, ENJOY!
