TWD: Baking With Julia - Baking Powder Biscuits

I have been missing baking along the last four months...  I can't believe I didn't bake a single thing with everyone for that long, how embarrassing.  Ok, well I am back and ready to bake some more.  The recipe for today, Baking Powder Biscuits, was quick and easy and they turned out great.  I probably could have cut the recipe in half, because biscuits two days later are never quite as good as when they are fresh out of the oven.  If you want some other variations check out the blog role at Tuesdays With Dorie.

It is a pretty simple combination of flour, baking powder and salt.  Added some milk and shortening and was pretty much ready to roll them out.  They were light and fluffy on the inside with a nice crunch on the outside.  They recommended to add a little butter on top before cooking them and I meant to, but completely forgot until they had already cooked for about five minutes.  Oh well, guess that means we just had to add more butter on the inside!  They turned out great and if we ever want some more biscuits I am glad this recipe will be in reach.

  1. They look perfect. The recipe was easy and good, wasn't it?

  2. This one called me back too. Your photos are so fun!

  3. welcome back! glad you enjoyed. I have an almost identical-looking jam collection, btw.

  4. I loved how easy this one is! And a little extra butter on the inside always works :-)
    I always seem to forget to halve my recipes now that my girl is back to school. By the time I get back into that habit, she'll be home again...

  5. The photo of the biscuit slathered in butter, is making me want one right now - looks delish!
