J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
This is a great biscuit recipe. The only comment I would make is regarding the video on how to make these. I don't think you should knead biscuit dough at all. Like pie pastry, kneading will make them heavier and less flaky. Simply gather the dough and press together firmly before rolling out.
Also, If you have opened baking powder in your cabinet that is older than 4 months, throw it out and buy some fresh. If your biscuits are not rising as much as they should, stale baking powder is usually why.
I have experimented adding some additional things to this basic recipe. Try adding a little grated cheese, or some roasted garlic, or perhaps some diced sun-dried tomatoes just before adding the milk. Also, I find they come out a little nicer flavored if you use buttermilk instead of regular milk, but they are delicious either way.
