Debbie's Cloud Biscuits

I am way over due to share a recipe with you. I have had this recipe for years, and it is melt in your mouth goodness. It makes biscuits and gravy taste better then ever.
 I rolled out the biscuits on my Demarle Roul Pat... man oh man oh man you have got to get one of these, they are super fantastic. I used very very little extra flour to keep it from sticking.... I mostly used the flour on my hands, not the mat. I have the biggest sized Roul Pat Demarle carries. It just fits on my counter. I love it. So worth the it.
 Here are the biscuits going into the oven on my perforated baking tray and silpat. Love them!
And oh my gosh I almost forgot to take a picture before we ate them all. Here at the yummies out of the oven. Perfect, warm, melt in your mouth goodness. Oh yes the recipe....

They are really called Debbie's, I didn't add my name in front of them. Come to think of it, I have two bread type recipes with my name already in it! ha! Funny.

Debbie's Cloud Biscuits
2 C Flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar ( add about 2 tsp or so of sugar)
1 tsp salt
Sift above ingredients. (I just use my whisk and whisk them good)

Cut in
1/2 C shortening (I used butter flavored Crisco) Set the crumbly dough aside.

Combine till well blended (I use a fork and whisk to blend)
1 egg
2/3 c milk ( I like buttermilk when I have it on hand, but any kind of milk will work)

Mix egg and milk mixture into sifted flour mixture with a fork until dough follows fork around bowl.  Place dough in well floured board. Kneed about 20 times. Roll out, and pat out to 3/4 inch thick. Cut as desired. Place in 9x13" greased baking dish. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-14 minutes.

The Demarle Way.
Little flour needed on Roul Pat, mostly just for your hands. Place cut biscuits on non-greased silpat. I spaced them a little bit. Bake at 440 degrees oven for 10-14 minutes.

Debbie's notes:
I like to brush melted butter on the tops of the biscuits before going in the oven, and after coming out.. you know that makes them really healthy and oh so good! If ya are gonna eat one or two of these babies with gravy and a side of bacon... ya may as well do it up right...right!

Oh I always double this recipe and they come out perfect every time too.

Happy Baking!
