Biscuits, The Better Half of the South

I finally perfected what I think is the best biscuit recipe that not even Paula Deen could top.

So here's where you start, "git yarself......"

2 Cups of all purpose flour, although you can use bread, whole wheat, or whatever the hell you find suitable

2 and 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 a teaspoon of salt

6 tablespoons of butter (hell yes) and don't forget to melt it.

3/4 a cup of milk, (you can use almond or soy I found it doesn't matter, I don't use real whole milk because I don't know who would use cow juice in biscuits)

1/4 a cup of water

Now some people can use little fancy cookie cutters, but I prefer to use a cup that way it's about the size of a biscuit which is 2 and 1/2 by 2 and 1/2 inches.

If you want a Bojangles type biscuit roll the dough out to about 3/4 an inch or so (those of you who don't know Bojangles don't know life)

Whatever you do, don't roll the dough too thin, or else you'll end up with crackers and disappointed people.

Turn on that damn oven to 425 degrees and throw in the biscuits, leave them for about 14-15 minutes or at least until they look firm then take them out, let them cool, and enjoy. This batter only makes about 10 biscuits, reason being is because they don't last long, meaning they go stale after about a day.
