Baking Powder Biscuits
Master the technique, and this recipe will reward you with rich, flaky, tender biscuits. The trick, as with all biscuits, is to use a gentle touch and not overwork the dough; mix just until the ingredients come together. Once they're baked, serve them warm and let their aroma invite everyone to the table.
Herb Biscuit Variation
Finely chop and then mix together a variety of fresh herbs -- such as rosemary, oregano, thyme, parsley, and chives -- to yield 4 tablespoons. Add herbs to butter-and-flour mixture after butter has been cut in. Proceed with the remainder of the recipe.
