A Quick-to-Make Biscuit Recipe

Updated on December 2, 2017

If you are like me, you like recipes that have few ingredients and are easy to make, especially when you are in a hurry or if you decide to make something the last minute. I love this recipe because it is simple.

Cook Time

Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 10 min
Yields: About 9 biscuits


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 TBSP Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Shortening
  • 3/4 cup Milk


  1. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl then join the shortening.
  2. After using a fork to mix everything together like pebbles, pour in the milk. Stir all ingredients into a dough.
  3. Cover the counter with flour, add the dough, and then cover your hands with flour before handling the sticky dough.
  4. When the dough is circular, cut out the biscuits, and then place them on an ungreased cookie sheet before placing the sheet in the 450 degree oven.

      This seems like a quick and easy recipe for biscuits. My son works at a great independent breakfast/lunch restaurant and they make amazing biscuits and he brings some home all the time. So no baking for me.
