Flaky,Light Biscuits

I love biscuits, with butter and honey, with butter, with jam, dipped in soup – pretty much any which way – they are delicious!!d  I needed something to go with the sweet potato soup and found this recipe in a family cookbook.  I did make them thinner than normal – but that was intentional – we couldn’t cut them in half, but that worked for the soup and dipping in our egg yolks during breakfast!

Biscuits (Out of the kitchen comes the tune…Irish Proverb)


2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup coconut oil
2/3 – 3/4 cup whole milk

1. In a glass bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt.

2. Cut the coconut oil into the dry ingredients.

3. Make a well and add the milk all at once and stir quickly with fork until dough ball forms.  I had to add a little bit more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.

4. Turn dough out onto a floured work space and knead the dough.

5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

6. Roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thick (I rolled out to about 1/4″ thick).

7. Cut into circles with a cutter (I could not find mine – think it was already packed so I used a glass jar and a canning jar ring).

8. Bake on an un-greased baking sheet for about 12 – 15 minutes or until they a lightly browned.

Enjoy – they will go fast.  These were gone in about 24 hours!
