Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar and salt. 
  2. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut in the butter until you get coarse crumbs.
  3. Pour in the milk and stir until a dough forms. Put the dough onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth.
  4. Roll the dough out using a rolling pin until it is about 1/2-inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits (you could also use a knife and cut into squares). Roll the scraps together and continue to cut out the biscuits. Put the biscuits onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for about 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

If you lived here, you wouldn't get one of these gorgeous biscuits at KFC, but an utterly yukky "bread roll" - and the KFC isn't crispy like in the US. You are SO lucky. :-)
