I’m always looking for easy recipes, and my Aunt Lynn told me that she had a simple and delicious biscuit recipe of my Nana’s that she often used. Annabel loves anything you can put butter on, so I had my aunt come over and we made my Nana’s light and fluffy three ingredient biscuits!

Nana’s Three Ingredient Biscuits

You need:

Nana's 3 ingredient Biscuits

2 cups of Bisquick
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup milk

add dry ingredients

Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine the Bisquick and baking soda.

slowly mix in milk

Slowly add the milk (a bit at a time) and mix thoroughly before adding more milk.

the dough should ball up

You are looking for the dough to “ball up.”  If you’ve added too much milk, add just a bit more Bisquick until it balls up (vs. being sticky).

press out and fold over dough

Plop the dough onto a floured board. Press the dough down a bit and then fold it over once. Gently press it down again to about 1/2″ – 3/4″ thick.

cut out biscuits

Cut round biscuits out with a drinking glass or biscuit cutter. Depending on the size of the glass, you should get about 7-10 biscuits.

spread milk on top of biscuits

Place the round biscuits onto an ungreased cooking sheet. Spread some milk on top of the biscuits with a pastry brush, or use your fingers if your husband and daughter used your pastry brush as a toy and ruined it. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them. You don’t want to overcook.

burned

I overcooked them the first time. This upset many people who were standing around waiting for biscuits.

Luckily, my second batch turned out MUCH better.
