My Ultimate Biscuit Recipie



I’m lucky to have a father-in-law who is a pretty good cook and doesn’t keep his recipes a secret.  One of the recipes he’s passed to my husband is biscuits and I have made them tons of times -thank you, dad 🙂 –

Having said that, I have a confession to make…  For making 6 biscuits, his recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of baking powder.  Tablespoon? Isn’t it a mistake for teaspoon?  I have been a polite daughter-in-law these past 10 years complimenting and thanking him for the recipe  but pretending not to notice “his typo”.  However, for some reason I decided to follow his tablespoon thing as written – in double the amount -, just daring the outcome.


Voila!  He has been right all along!  They came out unbelievably puffy and moist.
I mixed shredded cheese in for a change and coated the top of them (I actually dipped the whole top) in garlic butter just like Red Lobster.
