This is a basic recipe I use for just about everything… I’ve made cookies with it, dumplings (sweet ones and savory ones), biscuits… It’s very versatile.
- 2 c. all purpose flour (although whole wheat also works)
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp cold butter
Preparation: Mix all in dry ingredients. You can either use a pastry blender to cut the butter into it, but I prefer doing a couple of batches at a time in my food processor. Whichever method you prefer, blend until it reaches an almost fine crumbly kind of texture. You may want to add a bit more butter if it’s not reaching the consistency that you like. It should not be wet. I put it in a Ziploc freezer bag and store in my cupboard for months at a time.
