Old Fashioned Biscuits

Old Fashioned Biscuits

There is just something better about doing things the old fashioned way sometimes, don’t you think? While I love trying new recipes, new technology, and new experiences, I also love teaching my kids about simple things too. My kids and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, baking away and creating new things. The other day I thought it would be fun to teach them something old instead of something new. All three of us put on our aprons, grabbed a few simple ingredients from the pantry, and got to work baking old fashioned biscuits for dinner.

  1. There’s nothing like a good homemade biscuit- YUM!! 🙂

    could the bisquits be made with almond milk? My daughter can not have regular milk or soy milk. I would love to make these since they are cheaper then buying baking mix.

    • I’m actually not sure! But, I think it’s worth a try!

      • I am lactose intolerant and I usually swap out the liquid in recipes for rice milk, almond, oat milk, or half water and half something else if I am not 100% sure of the taste.

        My theory is that the people in the past, i.e. 100 years ago or more, did not always have milk on hand or to spare and probably used whatever they had. (water or watered milk)

  4. Do these freeze well? Have you tried that and do you thaw them out beore baking them?

  5. Tx, looks like fun! What is the rising agent in this recipe since theres no baking powder only baking soda.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. I can’t wait to bake these with my daughters.

  7. Do you use unsalted butter?
