Is there really anything better than warm, fresh from the oven, homemade biscuits, with melted butter oozing down the sides .. or topped with a gorgeous layer of sausage gravy? 
I think not.
From start to finish this biscuit recipe only takes 32 minutes.  That means that you won't be slaving around in your kitchen all morning (or day!)

I found this recipe from Paula Deen in the Food Network Magazine (which is on sale right now)

Homemade Biscuit Recipe


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

8 tablespoons butter, cubed

3/4 cup milk


In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut butter into mixture until it begins to look like cornmeal.

Make a well with flour mixture and slowly add milk into the middle. Knead dough with your fingers and add milk when necessary. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with small biscuit cutter.

Butter bottom of skillet and place biscuits in pan. Cover and place on top of hot coals in the fireplace. Carefully place some hot coals on top of the skillet cover. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

And that's it, folks! Easy peasy homemade biscuits.
