Grandma's Biscuits

This simple but great recipe for biscuits has been passed along to me, I have tried others, but always come back to this one. An eggless recipe!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsps. baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp. (1/4 cup) cold margarine
  • 1 cup cold milk


Sift dry ingredients together. Add margarine and blend into the dry ingredients. Add cold milk. Stir with a fork, leave some lumps.

Put out onto a floured board, shape into a roundish form, knead very slightly 4 or 5 times. Roll out (I pat down dough with the rolling pin) to 1 inch thick. Cut out biscuits with small cutter.

Grease 9 inch square pan. (I spray Pam cooking spray on the pan.) Cook in a preheated oven of 425 degrees F. for 15-18 minutes.

Hint - You can top each biscuit with grated cheddar cheese if desired, see my latest batch pictured.

Servings: 10-12 biscuits
Prep Time: 10 mins. Minutes
Cooking Time: 15-18 Minutes

Source: This recipe was passed to me by my mother. Served with baked beans or homemade soup - soooo good.

We used this recipe with King Arthur gluten free flour & vegan butter and it made the best topping for our pot pie.
