Best Ever Mile High Biscuits are Flaky biscuits full of buttery flavor, that bring back sweet memories in the kitchen making biscuits as a child with my mother. She would let me roll out the dough and cut the biscuits.
I think they taste better because she let me help. Maybe you can make some memories with someone you love today and try your hand at biscuits from scratch and not a package. The memories will last longer than the biscuits in your tummy.
Ingredients you will need to make the Best Ever Mile High Flaky Biscuits
- all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- cold milk
In a mixing bowl, mix the sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender into small pea sized pieces
Add the milk and mix together and form a ball. Do not over mix. Dough will be sticky.
Roll dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle shape that is about half an inch thick.
When you roll out the dough you should see the pieces of butter. These turn to steam and make the layers. That is why your butter needs to be and remain cold.
Fold over the Dough to one-third and fold the other third towards the middle as if folding an envelope. Roll out again to half-inch thick and repeat the folding.
Do this one more time making sure you do not warm The dough and melt the butter. The object is to keep pieces of butter in tact so that when the biscuit bake it will make small pockets that will make the flaky layers.
Best Ever Mile High Flaky Biscuits are so easy to learn following these steps. Cut out as many biscuits as possible the first roll. You want to push straight down and not twist the dough so it doesn’t seal the edges. If the edges seal they won’t rise properly and make the flaky layers.
Fold dough again and cut out the rest of the biscuits.
You can see the pieces of butter in the biscuits.
Take a pastry brush and 2 tablespoons of milk and brush each basket on the top before baking. place on

See the layers? I start checking my biscuits at eight minutes to make sure they do not burn. I leave the light on in the oven and watch them like a hawk through the oven door. They are done when golden brown.
