These tender biscuits are lovely with just about any soup or stew you care to name. With their hint of sage and the ease of their preparation, Sage Biscuits make a welcome addition to any autumn or winter meal.
You donít even need a biscuit-cutter to make them! Get the easy directions and get ready for warm, meltingly-good biscuits, with or without butter:
2 cups unbleached flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup oil or butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup fresh sage, minced
1. Preheat oven to 475F. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt, and place in mixing bowl. Combine oil, egg, milk, and sage in a separate bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ones. Combine with a fork, just until mixed.
2. Cover a baking sheet with parchment or grease it lightly. Spoon dough onto baking sheet or roll out on a lightly floured countertop and cut into rounds with a biscuit cutter or floured glass.
3. Bake 8 to 12 minutes on top rack of even, until the bottoms are nicely browned.
Makes 12 modest-sized biscuits.
