Light and Flaky Biscuits
8 Min

These homemade biscuits taste even better than they look or smell! Our Light and Flaky Biscuits are just as great for breakfast with jam, as they are in a holiday bread basket. 

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt; mix well. Add milk and oil and stir just until a soft dough forms.
  3. Lightly flour a flat surface and use a rolling pin to roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a 2-1/2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, cut into round biscuits and place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until light golden. Serve warm.


To keep the biscuits light and fluffy, do not overmix the dough or over-handle it when rolling it out.

I made these light & flaky biscuits this morning and they were wonderful. They tasted like the ones my mother use to make when I was a child. Saturday, morning hot biscuits cooking in the kitchen. Wow! great recipe. DrHYCH20 B-) 26 Feb 2013
