Easy Homemade Baking Powder Biscuits Recipe

This Easy Homemade Baking Powder Biscuits Recipe was handed down to me by a dear friend and fellow restaurateur who has since retired to the scenic landscapes and beautiful sunsets of the Louisiana Gulf Coast.

Remembering "Miss Mary" (Mary Richard, Kaplan, LA.) Her baking powder biscuits taste great with morning breakfast and bold N'awlin's style coffee.

Baking Powder Biscuits
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 4 Tbs shortening (chilled unsalted butter is fine)
  • 1 cup milk
      1. sift flour once 
      2. measure and add baking powder and salt 
      3. cut in shortening (butter) and gradually add milk until soft dough is formed 
      4. roll out on slightly floured cutting board and knead about 4 times
      5. cut out 2 1/2" diameter biscuits
      6. bake in pre-heated oven at 450°F. for 12 to 15 minutes.
