I’m a little sad to admit that this is my first attempt at making biscuits. Can I just tell you how flippin easy they are to make!? Seriously. Easy.
I have a feeling you guys are going to start reading a lot about biscuits because I am going to make a gazillion versions of the recipe just so I can have an excuse to make homemade biscuits every night of the week. In fact, you will probably hear of a family whose house got so overrun by biscuits they had to move out. Okay not really. I’m just tired. And hungry.
This recipe for Peanut Butter Biscuits comes from a printed recipe my Grandma probably cut out years ago. The recipe doesn’t even specify how much milk to put in. I honestly love that. It attests to the “from scratch” baking that was common 50 years ago. You were expected to make these biscuits by feel. Once you got the texture you were looking for you stopped adding milk.
After doing a bit of research to get an idea of how much to add I went about making the recipe. I’ve added the best estimate onto the recipe but, depending on humidity and elevation, you may need more or less. I started by adding 1/2 cup, mixing, then gradually adding the rest until a dough formed.
These will be going in the kids lunches with jelly for a wonderful variation of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
