Basic Buscuits
Health Highlights


2 1/2 cup All-purpose white flour (divided)
4 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking soda
4 tbsp Butter, salted (cold)
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 cup Partly skimmed milk, 1% M.F.
3/4 tsp Salt


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Mix the vinegar or lemon juice into one cup of milk and place in the refrigerator until you need it.

In a large bowl combine 2 cups of flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir well to make sure the ingredients are evenly combined. The mixture will not be stirred much after this step.

Slice the butter into pats and add to the flour mixture. Using your hands, mush the butter into the flour mixture until it is evenly incorporated. It will have a fine, sandy texture when it is all mixed in. You can also use a food processor for this step.

Stir in the cold milk just until the mixture is completely wet. The dough will be very wet and sticky at this point.

Liberally flour the counter top and your hands. Turn the dough out onto the counter, sprinkle with some flour and pat it down until it is about ¾ inch thick. Using a cookie/biscuit cutter or some other round object (a glass or empty can) cut the biscuits out of the dough. Place the cut biscuits onto a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Take the remaining dough, form into a ball and pat it out to ¾ inch again. Cut more biscuits and repeat until all of the dough is used up.

Bake the biscuits in the 450 degree oven for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown on top. After baking slice them open, slather with butter and honey and enjoy your morning!
