Sunday Morning Tea Biscuits

I absolutely love making these little semi-sweet biscuits. They are excellent with a nice cup of tea (I recommend Lady Grey), a cup of coffee (no cream or sugar thank you) or hot cocoa. They are good all on their own but you can add raisins, cranberries, chopped pecans….the list is endless. Well, only as endless as the supplies in your pantry. It only takes about 10 minutes to mix a batch & pop them in the oven & another 15 to bake. If you time it right you might just have a fresh out of the oven biscuit with your first cup of the day. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 375F.

3 1/4 c. Flour

1/4 c. Sugar

1 Tbsp. Baking powder

1/2 tsp. Salt

3/4 c. Vegetable oil

1 c. Milk

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Blend in milk and oil. Knead the dough for about 2 minutes. Roll out dough to roughly 3/4″ thick. Using a 1 1/2″ round cookie cutter, cut out biscuits and put on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. You should be able to cut out 20 to 24 biscuits. Pop in the oven & bake for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown.

For an added treat, melt some butter, add some honey & use as a biscuit “dipping sauce”.
