This is my favourite recipe. Nothing tops a fresh, flakey tea biscuit just as it’s coming out of the oven.

These never last more than a morning at my house. It’s a Sunday morning “bakes” for us, and so easy for the kids to get involved.


0/0 steps made
  1. Preheat over to 425 F.
  2. Whisk together all dry ingredients.
  3. Slowly cut in butter until batter is course.
  4. Slowly pour milk over top, mixing batter with hands. Keep working the batter until it becomes sticky & ragged. Add more flour as needed
  5. Lightly flour a surface you can work on and knead the dough.

Additional Options:

The nice thing about this recipe is you can customize it. You can make them cheddar cheese biscuits as well. If you want to do this add the additional ingredients after step 4. You can add a cup of cheddar cheese and that should do it! Sorry for the interruption:

Sprinkle flour on baking sheet. Role out the dough to about 1cm thick. With a cookie cutter, cut out rounds and place them on baking sheet.

Brush with the egg-wash and they’re ready for the oven! Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Let cool and top these with ANYTHING! Butter, jam, cheese, eggs…literally anything. And enjoy!
