Absolutely delicious & delicate old-fashioned biscuits. Great with dinner and gravy or strawberry jam & whipped cream for dessert!! Very easy to make.


2 cups all-purpose four
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup Carnation Evaporated Milk
1/4 cup water


Heat oven to 450 degrees.
Measure flour, baking powder & salt into a bowl - mix together.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until thoroughly incorporated.
Stir in milk and lightly mix with fork just until you get a soft pliable dough.
DO NOT over mix or you will have tough biscuits!!!
Place dough on floured board and shape lightly to about 1/2 " thickness.
Cut with a floured biscuit cutter.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes.
Makes about 12 biscuits.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
