Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes
Yield: Makes About 10 Biscuits
- 8 tablespoons cold butter, divided
- 2 medium onions, chopped (sweet onions or yellow onions)
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, about 10 1/2 ounces
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk, low fat is fine
Heat the oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir to blend well. Cut the remaining 5 tablespoons of butter into smaller pieces and work into the dry ingredients using fingers or a pastry blender until the mixture resembles crumbs.
Add the milk and onions with their melted butter. Stir until all ingredients are moistened. On a floured surface, pat the soft dough out into a circle about 1/2 inch thick. Cut out with biscuit cutters and arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for about 10 to 14 minutes, until nicely browned. If desired, brush tops with melted butter while they're hot.
Makes about 10 standard sized biscuits. Or, about 12 to 16 with smaller (1 1/2- to 2-inch) biscuit cutters.
