Baking Powder Biscuits

5

by: Umberto






While really more akin to pastry than to bread, baking powder biscuits are best served hot at a meal, perhaps a special meal, where they can accompany meats or other substantial foods. You can make these by hand in a bowl, by hand on a work surface, in a mixen or in afood processor. Here, the biscuits are made in a bowl with a pastry cutter. Makes 1 1/2 pounds dough, 12 biscuits.

preparation

1.  When the dough starts to come together, scrape it away from the sides of the bowl with a bench scraper.

2.  Dump the dough onto a work surface and knead slightly to get it to come together. Pull the dough into a mound. It should barely hold together.

3.  Use the heel of your hand to flatten the mound into a disk.

4.  Roll the dough out into a 2/3-inch-thick disk and cut out the biscuits with a fluted cookie cutter.

5.  Bake until golden brown.
