Special thanks to King Arthur Flour for the free ingredients.
Happy Thursday! This week has flown by and I'm excited that it has--Adam and I have all of our work squared away, so that we can actually spend the whole weekend together! I am so excited because sometimes we both get so involved with our responsibilities at work we can't even enjoy our time off. I'm not sure what we're doing yet, but whatever it is I am sure we will have fun!
Today, I'm sharing a recipe for country-style biscuits! The best part? It only requires three ingredients! These biscuits are a heavenly mix of soft, hard, salty, sweet, and buttery.
3 Ingredient Country Biscuits
*yields about 1 dozen, 2 inch biscuits
- 2 cups of King Arthur Unbleached Self-Rising Flour
- 1/2 cup of cold butter
- 2/3 cup of milk (I used organic whole milk)
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees (F).
- Place the flour in a bowl. Sift.
- Work in the butter until the flour begins to crumb.
- Add in the milk and stir the mixture until it holds together.
- Scoop the dough onto a well-floured surface, and then fold the dough over onto itself as much as you need (so you can prevent it from sticking).
- Roll and pat the dough out so that it's 1/2 inch thick.
- Cut biscuits with a sharp, round 2 inch cutter. Dip the cutter into flour between cuts to prevent sticking. Re-roll cutting scraps and continue to make biscuits until you're out of dough.
- Place the biscuits in a round cake pan (I used a 9 inch pan) on top of wax paper. Arrange the biscuits close together but not touching (shown in image above) to get a crispy outside and soft inside.
- Bake the biscuits for 10 to 15 minutes. Mine took 14 minutes (depends on your oven).
- Remove them from the oven and serve them hot! Or, to save for later, wrap them airtight and store at room temperature for several days; freeze for longer storage. To re-heat biscuits, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees (F) and bake for 10 to 13 minutes.
Thanks to King Arthur Flour for letting me share their recipe with you today!
King Arthur Flour is fantastic! It's the only self-rising flour I've ever used, and I've had consistent results every time I've baked or cooked with it.
What I also love about King Arthur Flour is that they have a baker's hotline; if you ever have any questions about the ingredients or products you bought from them, you can call them and speak to someone who can help you!
I could essentially get everything that I'd ever need for baking from King Arthur Flour, but it is a bit pricey (which is why I don't buy everything from them). There are a number of reasons why it's more expensive than other brands, and I think that a major part of that is because 1) they use premium American-grown wheat for all of their flours, and 2) they offer so many amazing benefits that come with buying the products (e.g. the hotline you can call for help). The self-rising flour is worth every penny, though! If there is anything you should buy from them, it's definitely the King Arthur Flour's Self-Rising Flour.
