A - Z Blogging Challenge - M

I make these biscuits two or three times a month.  They're  simple to make and delicious!!  I find the secret to light, fluffy biscuits is to be very gentle with the ingredients, not  overhandle the dough and  to refridgerate the pan of prepared biscuits for 30 minutes before placing them in the oven.  You want them to be very cold!!

Mile High Biscuits

2 cups all purpose flour
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. salt
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cream of tarter

1/2 cup cold butter (cut into small pieces)
1 cup cold milk

Place first 5 ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together.  Cut in butter until mixture looks crumbly.  (I use my hands but I always refridgerate biscuits before baking to re-chill butter).  Make a well in center of the flour mixture, pour in the cold milk, stir gently to combine.  Dough will still be a little sticky. Turn out onto a floured surface.  Knead gently 8-10 times.  Pat dough until 3/4 inch thick or half the thickness you would like the finished product to be.  Cut into squares or cut into circles using cookie cutter.  Place on parchment lined baking sheet  and bake in 450 degree F. oven for 12-15 minutes.

Sound good!
I made Quiche for dinner last night, for the first time, mind you... and was wondering if you have a simple Quiche recipe in the works for Q day... hoping so ;-)

Is there a 'lofty' reason why they're called 'Mile High'?!

Oh I would love to make these and have them turn out...mine are usually a food disaster.
Thanks for posting! Maybe mine will turn out this time, too.

I think even I could manage these cookies. Gentle hand? I've got a gentle hand, sometimes. Thank you! By the way, I don't live in the States - could you give a recipe one day for something that is really, truly, traditionally US? Like key-lime pie? (Oh dammit, k's gone)

I'm a big fat fraud! My husband thinks I make homemade biscuits,but I always use the Pioneer Baking Mix. I told my kids that they can tell him the truth after I die. Anytime before that- and I'm in trouble! Maybe I'll have to try your recipe and drop the charade!
