Perfect easy biscuits for biscuits and gravy!
2 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup cooking oil
2/3 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450.
In a large bowl - sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Combine cooking oil and milk and add all at once to dry ingredients. Mix with a fork to form a soft dough. Shape into a ball and kneed about 10 times or until smooth. Place between two pieces of wax paper and roll to 1/2 inch thickness.
With a round cookie cutter, cut into biscuits and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 -15 minutes or until slightly golden.
~Don't have a cookie cutter? Use the rim of a wine glass or plastic drinking cup. Or increase milk to 3/4 cup and drop dough by the spoonful onto baking sheet.
Add 2 tsp orange zest and 2 TBSP sugar to dry ingredients. Combine oil with 1/4 cup milk and 1/2 cup orange juice. Drop by spoonful onto baking sheet.
