As a Southerner and our household cook, I experimented until I hit on just the right biscuit recipe. It practically screams to be smothered in gravy or stuffed with eggs and sausage. —Susan Flippin, Mt. Airy, NC

  • 2-1/2 cups self-rising flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup cold butter or shortening
  • 1 to 1-1/4 cups 2% milk
  • Melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place 2 cups flour in a large bowl. Cut in butter until butter is the size of peas. Stir in 1 cup milk. Dough should be wet and sticky; if needed, stir in some of the remaining milk.
  2. Place remaining flour in a small bowl. Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup dipped in flour, remove 1/4 cup dough from bowl and drop into flour; gently turn to coat. Place 2 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Repeat.
  3. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter; serve warm. Yield: 8 biscuits.
