Biscuits are easy to make and a staple for breakfast and camping meals. Biscuits are made from simple ingredients we should have on hand in your pantry.
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
6 tbs butter
6 oz milk
Preheat the oven because you want to get the dough cooking as soon as it is made. [The baking powder start to off-gas as soon as it contacts a liquid. If you delay you will lose the lift needed for the biscuits].
Place flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and thoroughly blend.
Add and cut in butter until the mixture looks like crumbly.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat or roll to about a ½ inch thickness. Then fold the dough in 1/3rds, 1/3 over the center and the other 1/3 on top the first 1/3 folded. Then long ways fold in 1/2 then fold in half in half again. [This folding will create the layers you’re looking for in a biscuit]
Place pieces on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
