Good Morning! Here in Oregon it's just after 7am, and that means breakfast time. So, after I've had my coffee, we'll get down on making some biscuits.
(3 cups of coffee later...)
Let's get started with some biscuits, shall we? All measurements are by weight.
20 oz AP Flour
1 oz Sugar (not pictured because Rob's a dick and mixed it into the flour already)
3/8 oz Salt (.375 oz)
1 1/4 oz Baking Powder
7 oz Butter (cold)
13 oz Milk
Step 1 - mix the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder together.
Step 2 - Cut the butter into the flour, using metal spatulas, bench scrapers, anything of the sort really. Rubber/silicone/plastic spatulas work as well, but tend to be less effective in cutting due to their dull edges.
You're done once the butter has been cut down into pea sized pieces.
Step 3 - Make a well in the middle of your flour/butter, and pour in some milk. Gently work the flour into the milk by pushing it in from the top of the well. Once that is worked together, make another well and incorporate the rest of the milk.
Step 4 - Flour your work area and lay down your dough, then fold it onto itself several times, then roll it out to about a 1/2 inch thickness.
Step 5 - Cut and bake (10-12 minutes in a 375 degree convection oven), pull them out once they're golden brown.
