This biscuit recipe is foolproof. And delicious. I think it came from a Bob’s Red Mill flour package. Anyway, it’s good and easy to make.
2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp salt
6 tbsps. butter
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in cold butter with a pastry cutter until the dough is crumbly. Slowly add milk until dough just comes together. Dough will wet and sticky.
Turn onto a floured surface and knead 15 times (yep, it even tells you how many times to knead the dough). Roll dough out with floured rolling pin, or, as I did, use your hands to pat it out to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out between six and nine biscuits depending on the size of your biscuit cutter.
Bake from 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown,
Brown 1 pound of sausage (your choice)
Remove sausage from pan
If you need additional fat, add about 2 tablespoons of butter
About 4 tablespoons of flour, constantly stir until flour just begins to brown
Slowly stir in 2 cups of milk, continue stirring until gravy slowly boils and thickens remove from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy over your just baked biscuits.
