Baking Powder Biscuits

Recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour

Possibly one of the most delicious and easy breakfasts features these heavenly biscuits: savory pesto, fried eggs, and just-baked biscuits. You can even include some breakfast meats for a more substantial breakfast.

To make breakfast sandwiches: Slice the biscuits open – when they’re fresh from the oven – smear on pesto, slide on a sunny side up egg, and enjoy. Plus, the simple list of ingredients makes it easy to bake up anytime- breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

1.5 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
3 or 4 tablespoons butter
.5 cup cream, milk, or buttermilk

Preheat your oven to 425°F.

Mix together the dry ingredients. With your fingertips, rub in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Add the liquid all at once, mixing quickly and gently for about 20 seconds until you have a soft dough.

You can cut these biscuits or roll them into balls. It’s simple and delicious. Refrigerate until the oven is ready. Place them on an iron skillet or baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned.
