Soda Biscuits

Biscuits are so satisfying to make.  They are small cakes of warm and homemade bready goodness that don’t need to rise at all!  I love that, that’s why it is satisfying, because they are so quick and yummy all at the same time.  Not to mention fun…they are just plain fun to roll out and cut into circles. Have fun serving these!  Especially hot with gravy or butter and jam.  Mmm…
Soda Biscuits
1 ¾ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425.  In a mixing bowl stir all ingredients together (you’ll have to use your hands and knead at some point to incorporate all of the flour into the dough).
On a floured surface, using a rolling pen, roll out the dough about ½ inch thick.  Then, using a circle cutter, cut as many circles as you can fit on the dough.  Then take the scraps of dough left, roll them out, and repeat the process until all of the dough is used up.
Place the biscuits on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until they are barely golden brown.  Makes about 1 ½ dozen.
