Over the weekend, it was cold here. That's no surprise, right, given that it's December? Anyway, this was a great weekend for stew: beef stew on Friday night, and chicken stew on Saturday night. And with stew, what's better than biscuits? I went looking for a new biscuit recipe, found and adapted this one from a 1999 Good Housekeeping cookbook recently adopted at a used book sale.
BUTTERMILK BAKING POWDER BISCUITS
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp buttermilk powder
1 cup water
1/4 cup softened butter or margarine
Stir all ingredients together (you might need up t6o 1/4 cup more flour if your dough isn't stiff enough). Drop the dough by tablespoons onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450F for about 15 minutes (420 Convection for 13 minutes). Makes about 15 biscuits.
My boys raved about these biscuits. I made a double batch each night, and none were left by 3 the next afternoon (and that's with only 3 sons home)!
