Sophies Best Biscuits


Prep Time:


Cooking Time:





Pre-heat oven to 450

Sift together the following ingredients:

2 cups self-rising flour
1 tsp baking power
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup sugar

In separate bowl, whisk together 1 egg and 1 cup real mayonnaise (this is in lieu of shortening)

Measure out ½ cup milk and to this add 1 tablespoon vinegar (this will sour the milk and give the taste of buttermilk)

Mix together all your wet ingredients and then fold into the flour

Flour your hands and then form biscuits with your hands being careful not to work your dough too much  (note: if dough is too sticky, add a bit more flour: if to dry add a tablespoon or two of water)

Place biscuits on pan sprayed with butter-flavored Pam and bake for about 10-15 minutes depending on whether or not you made smaller or larger biscuits.  As soon as the top starts to brown, remove from oven

Serve hot with butter, jam, honey or molasses.  Yum
