Stir and Roll Biscuits

The simplest recipe for flaky biscuits...

2 C. flour

3 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

½ C. vegetable oil

2/3 C. milk

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add oil and milk. Stir with a fork until mixture cleans sides of bowl and forms a ball. Turn dough out and knead once or twice until smooth. Press with hands or roll out to ½ inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter or glass rim. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 10-12 minutes at 450 degrees.

One of the tricks to flaky biscuits is not to work the dough too much. Make sure the dough is thick enough before you cut the biscuits. Too thin and they'll be crackers instead of biscuits. :) These are a yummy accompaniment to a thick stew. Yum!
