Skillet Biscuits

So obviously I need to cut back on bread... but it is so good! These skillet biscuits are so good and even have the layers (just like the canned ones). These are making their way to my dinning room table for Thanksgiving (which I have a whole game plan for... it has a binder and all!) For thanksgiving I am going to simply mix all of the dry ingredients together and store in a mason jar. 



Skillet Biscuits

Ingredients:
2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
8 Tbsp butter, cut in cubes
3/4 c milk

Recipe:
Preheat oven to 425.
1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
2. Cut in butter until it resembles cornmeal.
3. Push ingredients to the sides, making a bowl in the middle. Pour in milk.
4. Knead dough. 
5. Roll dough out onto lightly floured surface 1/4 inch. Fold in half and then fold in half again. (This will help with the layers). Roll back out to desired thickness.
6. Butter the bottom of the skillet.
7. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place in the skillet.
8. Place in oven for 12 minutes or until golden brown. I like to take mine 1/2 through and add butter on top.
