Easy Biscuit Recipe

2 C flour
2 Tbsp Sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 C oil
2/3 C milk

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together. In a small bowl, add the oil and milk, but do NOT mix together. Transfer liquids into dry ingredients and stir until well blended. Knead a few times (you can just use a spoon/spatula rather than getting your hands dirty) to form it into a ball. Roll out dough to 1/2″ thick between two pieces of plastic wrap, wax paper or aluminum foil. Cut into 10-12 squares. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until just starting to brown. OPTIONAL: Brush tops with butter for the last 2 minutes of baking.
