Your Questions About Homemade Biscuits

Ken asks…

Homemade Biscuits?

I only have milk, eggs, and flour. Can I make Homemade biscuits from just that? What are the ingredients? I only have these items, pls lemme know if it’s possible to make them w/ just that?
Thanks because, I do have oil and butter and salt, I thought it WAS possible w/out the other stuff. And my flour is the self-rising kind, so thankyou!

Halloween costume lion answers:

Homemade Biscuits(w/self rising flour)
1 cup of self rising flour
1/2 cup of milk
Mix flour & milk and stir until well mixed.(Your mix should not be too thick or biscuits will not rise, nor should they be too thin or they will not cook!)
Pour small amount of flour on clean countertop and pour biscuit dough onto it. Cover completely with dry flour until there are no wet spots remaining. Flatten biscuit dough until no thicker than one inch. Cut out biscuits with biscuit cutter. (I use the edge of a glass! It works just the same!) Place biscuits on ungreased cooking sheet. Place a small drop of butter on top of each biscuit. (You may use cooking oil, but butter tastes better.)
Cook at 350 degrees for twenty minutes or until golden

Turn dough onto a floured cutting or pastry board. Work dough to one-half inch thickness and cut using biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on baking sheet, not allowing the dough to touch.

Lizzie asks…

Homemade biscuits?

We’re having biscuits and gravy for dinner tonight, but we’re out of Pillsbury biscuits so I need to make some by hand.

What is your best tried and true biscuit recipe? No links please unless it’s something you’ve tried and turned out well.

This is how my grandma taught me to make them…
1 tbsp. Baking powder
2 c. Flour
3/4 c. Milk
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/3 c. Shortening
450 degrees , Use a dry fork to stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Cut in shortening, using a pastry blender, two knives or your fingertips, until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the mixture and add all of the milk. Stir with a fork until mixture is moist. Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Kneadthe dough, turning the dough, until soft and smooth. Roll dough, Cut biscuit shapes out of the dough using a biscuit cutter Place biscuit on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes or until golden on the bottom.

Jenny asks…

How to make homemade biscuits? preferably without milk or as little as possible?

I really want to make some homemade biscuits for my family but I also want to be able to enjoy them also. The problem is that I’m allergic to milk and dairy products. So if anyone could give me a good recipe for homemade biscuits and some good substitute ideas for milk I would greatly appreciate it. And, if not just a good recipe is fine.

Halloween costume lion answers:


2 c. Flour
3 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp. Salt
6 tbsp. Oil or soft shortening
2/3 c. Water

Mix all ingredients together. Add enough flour to knead easily. Knead on floured board about 30 seconds. Roll out to 1/2 inch thick. Cut with small cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 450°F for 10 to 12 minutes.

Makes 15 to 20 biscuits.

David asks…

What type of license do i need to sell homemade biscuits at a Sunday market in Australia?

I’m a stay at home mum and i’d like to earn some extra money for the family with out having to put my son in child care. I am interested in selling some of my homemade biscuits and slices at the local Sunday Rotary Market, but i’m sure that i will need some type of food handling license and, or a hygiene saftey qualification. If someone knows what i should do , then please reply. It could be you that i sell my food to.

Halloween costume lion answers:

You need a license from the Australian federation of Homemade Biscuits. Go to their website and download the form ID10-T that is the form that will allow you to sell biscuits on Sunday. Don’t grab the ID4-T from because that is for weekdays only. I hope this helps.
