I'm from Florida too and here is a great recipe that is loved around here. And so easy!
PreHeat oven to 425.
In large bowl sift flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and sugar.
Cut the butter into this mixture until it is coarse crumbs.
Add milk, a little at a time and toss til you get a dough that sticks together. But not too sticky.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gather into a disk shape and knead lightly a few times just til smooth.
Pat the dough to 3/4 inch thick and cut .
Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes.
Hints and tips:
*I use sour cream in place of the liquid alot of times. Just use 3/4 sour cream and the rest in water or milk.
*And add butter to tops of biscuits in the last few minutes of baking .
*This can be made ahead of time and refridgerated for up to 2 hours until ready to use.
**And the biggest tip I can tell you is to find a wide shallow bowl that you can do the mixing to patting out the biscuits in. I have a plastic bowl that i use just for this and it saves alot of time and cleanup.

Hi! I'm from London and i just started baking! Hope this recipe is a help! =)
I made these biscuits and i thought they would turn out horrible but how wrong i was! Everyone loves them and say they are the best things i make! And the recipe is SO easy! Makes about 60! Anyway here's the recipe:
Add sugar and butter in a bowl and mix (a wooden spoon is fine no need for a whisk)
Sift flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt together and add to the sugar and butter mixture.
Mix together with hand. After you should get a dough texture so now you add the egg! Kneed with hand once again.
Get baking tray and just get some butter and spread all around. Get a bit of the dough and roll into ball then flatten a little; the shape should be small because they spread out in the oven. Don't keep biscuits close to each other otherwise they will get stuck together.
Put in the oven and bake on low heat and take out until you think they are ready, usually when the edges are a bit golden.
Now if you want to make them chocolate chip cookies just add them to the dough mixture and mix in but if you don't have chocolate chips then just get a chocolate bar (cooking chocolate is best) and smash down to small pieces. Add as much as you want as you may want double or triple chocolate chips! And make the pieces as small or big as you want. Then just add to dough mixture and mix again! So simple! If anyone makes them please let me know how they came out! (01/15/2009)
