A quick and simple recipe for Southern Homemade Biscuits that bake up perfectly golden on the outside, and flaky and buttery on the inside.
Preheat the oven to 400° and have ready a baking sheet lined with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and whisk to combine.
Scatter the cubes of butter across dry mixture, and using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the cubes are the size of peas.
Add the milk and stir with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together. Lightly knead the mixture a bit with your hands (only if necessary) to bring it all together.
Transfer the dough to a work surface dusted with flour and pat out so that it is 1" thick. Cut into 2" squares or use a biscuit cutter to form the biscuits. You can re-work the scraps up to two times to make more biscuits.
Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden-brown. Serve and enjoy.
Makes 12 biscuits.
