A quick, easy way to make biscuits is to bake the biscuits in balls of dough instead of rolling out the dough. Simply whisk together the dry ingredients, crumble butter into the mixture, and stir in milk with a fork. Bake the biscuits at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
For the dry ingredients, mix together 1 1/2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of salt. Add 4 ounces of unsalted butter that has been cut into 1/4-inch pieces and refrigerated. Keeping the butter cold before use is needed to keep it from melting while mixing. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients. The butter and flour mixture can be mixed in a food processor as well. Quickly mix in 3/4 cup of milk with a fork to ensure a soft and delicate biscuit.
Form teaspoon-sized balls for small biscuits and 1/4-cup-sized balls for large biscuits, and place the balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the small biscuits at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes and the large biscuits at the same temperature for 20 minutes. Let the biscuits cool for a few minutes, and move them to a wire rack. The biscuits are best served slightly warm.
