J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
These were superb! Just like my grandma used to make.
Just some remarks:
1 - Add only as much milk as you need, so go slowly. Once it looks like dough and sticks, stop.
2 - I use margarine. Cold is ideal, it cuts in better.
3 - I added extra sugar because I like mine a little sweet, and sometimes I add a tsp of vanilla extra or cumin or lavender flowers or something to bring out some flavours... try adding garlic and brushing with butter and parm before baking.
4 - Do not knead, just stir until combined, pat, and cookie-cutter.
5 - If not using a convection oven, bake one rack higher than the middle so the bottoms don't burn, or put an empty cookie sheet on the bottom rack to disperse the heat.
6 - Better if the dough the left to percolate a big.
7 - Do yourself a favour and double the recipe from the get-go!
