Baking Powder Biscuits

When I was a kid, I always looked forward to my grandmother’s baking powder biscuits. We’d eat them with butter and lots of homemade jam, and life was good.

Her recipe eventually became the base for our breakfast pizza, and it’s been one I’ve carried with me in life. Odd, because I don’t tend to use recipes at all… and when I do, I usually tweak the crap out of them each time!

This is a recipe that doesn’t need tweaking, though. Sure, there are minor variations I’ll do – sometimes I’ll use milk (as she did), sometimes I’ll use buttermilk. If I don’t have shortening (as she used) or if I want a richer flavour, I’ll use butter instead. It’s all good!

As long as you don’t over-handle the dough, these biscuits bake up light and fluffy, and are easily split in half. This makes about 6 good sized biscuits, but is easily doubled.
