Today I’m transformed into a young girl skipping around singing the famous Ella Fitzgerald song “A tisket, a tasket, a brown and yellow basket…” (filled with my fabulous biscuits). Natalie Cole modernized this song as a tribute to Ella many years later.
So truth here, I can’t skip anymore (bum knee) and this song has nothing to do with biscuits, but it just seemed like a good song to sing while making these biscuits. (Aren’t you glad you don’t reside in my head where all this weird stuff pops up? I can’t say it is exactly a side-effect of the pandemic.)
Back to the biscuits. There are only three ingredients (flour, milk, and butter) in this simple-to-make recipe. So let’s get started!
It’s important to work with cold butter so that it mixes with the flour to create crumbles.
I made smaller biscuits than the average size. I like smaller biscuits to use with a variety of dishes.
Cut and ready to cook!
These biscuits had a nice puff to them.
Look at the layers of deliciousness.
Topped with my homemade strawberry jam is yummy. These biscuits are a great addition to any meal, breakfast (with jelly or gravy), lunch (with salads or soups), dinner (to sop up the juices of roasts), or dessert (topped with fruit and whip cream).
