4 1/2 c. Flour (I used Bread Flour)
2 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1 1/2 Tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Sugar
2 Sticks Butter softened, not melted
2 C. Milk
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until it is mostly pea sized pieces. Add the milk and mix until you get a soft dough ball. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for about 1 minute. Form into a circle about 3/4 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or a glass, cut the biscuits out and lay on a parchment lined (or greased) cookie sheet 1 inch apart.

Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes or until the tops are nice and browned. This recipe makes about 2 to 2 1/2 dozen biscuits depending on how big you make them. You can freeze them too. When you get to the part where you put them in the oven, put them in the freezer instead. Once frozen, transfer to a ziplock bag. To cook them from frozen just heat oven to 400 and bake them for about 20 minutes.

I have made lots and lots of biscuits and very few were edible. These are extremely easy and I even re-rolled out the pieces to make more and they weren't tough. If you have tried and failed to make homemade biscuits before, THIS is your recipe!
