I was watching the Food Network last night and Bobby Flay was doing a “biscuit throw-down” and I work up this morning with the biggest craving for biscuits ever. I have made biscuits a ton in the past and so I didn’t feel the need to look up his recipe, as mine seemed very similar. He did put black pepper on the top of his, which sounds pretty yummy, but I left that out because a black pepper biscuit with honey just didn’t sound that great this morning.


2 Cups Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar
½ Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
½ Teaspoon Salt
½ Cup Cold Unsalted Butter, cut into small cubes
¾ Cup Milk

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.

Sift together all dry ingredients. Add butter and work into flour with your hands until incorporated and dough has pea sized chunks of butter throughout. Add milk all at once and quickly knead dough until it just comes together, do not over work or it will make the biscuits tough. On lightly floured surface flatten dough out with your hands or a rolling pin until dough is ¾ inch thick. Cut with 2 inch or larger floured biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes at 450 degrees until golden brown. Serve hot with honey or jam.

Makes 8-10 2 inch biscuits
