Biscuits to Save the Day

Today pretty much sucked. Just picture 8 year old drama queen extraordinaire plus embarrassing failed attempt at dental work...probably 'nuff said. But I feel like saying SOOO much more. But I won't.
So I figured what better way to salvage the day than to finally succeed at biscuit making. I turned to the recipe recommended to me by Tiffany at Eat at Home after my last failed attempt. The recipe is certainly simple it is for ya:
2 cups flour
salt, a pinch or two
heaping Tbs. baking powder
1/4 - 1/3 cup butter
milk, nearly 1 cup
Stir together the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter. Stir in the milk to form a ball of dough. On a floured surface, pat or roll the dough out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into circles and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.
Here's their before pic.
Look how much they puff up! They were so yummy...I should have added more salt than I did was the only problem . Well, that and the biscuit snatcher!

The biscuits were really good but hardly solved any of our dental problems.

Oh least I got to see Twilight yesterday with my good friend Lisa! That didn't suck. HA! That was almost a pun. Sort of.

Those look like they'd be good with some gravy! course that's the southerner in me talking :)

Such fluffy biscuits. I've not had luck with biscuit making because all the good recipes look like this one - a little of this, some of that. I can't handle it! I need precise measurements! I've been assured that it is practice that gives you the feel of the dough. Yours look very successful!

Those look great! They're so much prettier than mine. Gravy would be good on them, but I don't eat it often - it fights me back!
