  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (232°C)

    Grease your pan as well.

  2. Dry mix

    In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together. If you want to add any herbs or spices you can add them here.

  3. Add butter

    Add the pieces of cold butter and cut into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter or fork until the consistency of coarse meal. If you want to add any cheeses or other add-ins you can stir them in here before adding the milk.

  4. Add milk combined with yogurt

    Add the milk and yogurt and stir just until combined. You can use any milk you like or buttermilk if you want a tangy flavor. If the batter is very dry, add a little more milk if needed until the consistency of a very thick batter. Do not over-mix. The batter will be quite lumpy.

  5. Prep to bake

    Drop large mounds (about 1/4 cup each) onto a greased baking sheet. You can also use a cast iron skillet that has been greased with butter.

  6. Bake

    Bake at 450°F (232°C) for 18-22 minutes until golden brown.

  7. Serve immediately

    Biscuits are best served hot! Smother liberally with butter and jelly or sausage gravy. Serve with fried eggs, coffee, and a copy of the local Pennysaver.
