These biscuits bake up golden brown on the outside and light fluffy inside. They're perfect slathered with butter, honey, and/or jelly. Sometimes we top them with a rich, thick chicken gravy for a top notch chicken and biscuits dinner.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Stir milk and oil into flour mixture until just moistened. Gently knead until dough comes together, 8 to 10 times.

  • Turn dough out onto a flat surface and roll to a 3/4-inch thick rectangle. Cut dough in half lengthwise and cut each half into thirds crosswise. Transfer each biscuit to the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until gold brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

I love how easy these biscuits are to prepare, and the recipe is easily adapted to one's taste. These mix together fast and bake fast. I find that it's not even necessary to roll out the dough, I can just pat it into shape and cut. I like to pat into a circle and cut wedges, so they look a bit like scones, but any shape works. I like these made with whole wheat flour, and I find they rise just fine with less baking powder (I can use 1 1/2 tablespoons for a double recipe). I can also reduce the salt and thus the sodium. True, these biscuits are more dense than ones made with butter, but these are healthier and easier to fix! Thanks! Read More

I made these with whole wheat flour and again with gluten free flour. Both turned out nicely. It's easiest to roll the dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper. remove the top sheet and pick up the paper to put directly on to the baking sheet. Read More

Very sturdy biscuit not bad flavor but the baking powder taste is very prominent. Reminds me of my Grandma's Baking Powder Biscuits. Pairs well with sausage gravy. Read More

super easy and quick. I misread and only used 1 tsp of baking soda but turned out great. But it is what it is a simple biscuit. I forgot to make bread in the morning and threw these together last min. it helped save dinner Read More

While they aren't the fluffy flaky buttery biscuit that I love those biscuits take too much time when I have to whip something up for breakfast fast. This recipe makes a convienient amount and they still taste very good. My family loves them and I think they're the perfect size for a serving of biscuits and gravy. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This is a great recipe for "quick" biscuits like it says. I substituted 2 tbls butter and 2.5 tbls real lard instead of the vegetable oil. The taste was delicious and very fluffy inside. Read More
