What might be a little less messy is to put lour and butter into a plastic sandwich bag and squeeze the flour and butter together to form the dough.

I don’t have 2%...we only use whole milk
Dana Karloz (16 days ago)
Ken Click thanks 🙏 I’m gonna make some in the morning after I get in from work
Ken Click (16 days ago)
That's fine. The point is that good biscuits may be made with whatever milk one has. Enjoy!

Update: I told a lady in an upscale bakery about Biscuits for One and gave her your name, told her to subscribe to your channel for more For One and For Two recipes. I thought she was going to cry, said she had given up on baking because of time, the cleanup, the hassle. She hugged me. After she left the workers behind the counter said "What's the man's name?" I smiled and wrote it down for them. You're making a LOT of people happy!

Great job sir, your biscuits look delicious! I don't normally buy 2% milk but will try this with whole milk, very soon. Thank you for sharing.

I live on my own so this recipe is great for me. BTW I always have very warm hands. I was told that's not a good thing for pastry or biscuit making.

Hi Ken, i love your recipes, i realy do. So please do not take offense. I have seen a few of your delicious recipes and tried them out. However, i have a problem with the conversions and translations between USA an UK !? For instance, 3/4 cup USA is not the same as 3/4 UK, Also, you name certain brands of cheese, butter etc that cannot be found in Europe. Is the self raising flour in USA the same as in UK? Some kind soul gave a recipe for SR Flour down below and also you can buy SR Flour in the stores in Sweden, where i now live, but is it the same? I mean, he states for making your own SR Flour: 1cup all purpose flour - is that USA or what? I have grown accoustomed now to translate between UK & Swedish, but it still isnt the same. Let me if i may give an example: Buying meat in the USA/UK is not the same as Sweden. Meat from the stores in Sweden is not as "fatty" as in UK. It is much more "lean" So the results of some recipes, not yours, are very different. Also you name brands in your recipes that are unheard of in Europe - are there varietes here that are the same? I hope you understand without taking offence? I have tried several times to make your "biscuits" for example, (they are called scones in UK), but they never turn out the same. IT's so annoying - lol!! Keep on my friend, your recipes make my mouth water so it aches!!!
Ken Click (1 month ago)
I appreciate you asking about these things. Unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with the products in the UK, so I have no way of knowing if they are similar or different from the ones we have here in the States. Sorry, I wish I could be of more help.

In Australia they are called scones (what we call biscuits people in the US call cookies) Here is the Grand Dame of Australian cookery and house keeping, Margaret Fulton, with a very slight variation in method.

Don't give up. This small batch size makes it easy to try again. If you know exactly the amounts used the first time you can either add more flour or cut back on liquid. You'll get it. I promise.

I'm not sure where you're from, but the white lily flour if I'm not mistaken it's from here in North Carolina. I believe I met the daughter of the owners of it. I could be mistaking another flower brand I'm not sure but for some reason I want to say white lily is from North Carolina. As if it matters LOL have a beautiful day

We used to make them with lard or half lard and half butter. Margarine just doesn't work as well because it has to much water in it.
Ken Click (2 months ago)
Yes, you're right.
Einar Gissurarson (2 months ago)
Well, if I may be pedantic, self rising flour is two ingredients. It's a mix of flour and baking powder.
Ken Click (2 months ago)
Actually it also has salt , so that makes three. We could go into chemistry and break it down even further. I'm referring to baking items purchased at the local grocer. It's a cooking thing.
Rob Moss (2 months ago)
If you want to make a dessert. Try adding orange marmalade or some other type like cinnamon sugar in between the layers as you fold. Then bake.

Watched while hungry and made them immediately. Used Tom Sobieski’s recipe (2 cup AP flour, 1Tbs baking powder, put the extra aside for later) used cheese grater to cut cold butter into the flour and 75g Fage Greek yogurt instead of milk. Had to add about 2 tsp ice water to hydrate the dough. Followed the video otherwise. Baked at 475 for about 10 minutes... SO GOOD!!!!
Ken Click (2 months ago)

Approx. 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Every oven is different and biscuits need to be watched. Take care.
Fab4Gal (2 months ago)
Your biscuits look great but there are two things I wondered about... 1) Why didn't you scrape out every bit of the biscuit dough that was left in the bowl and then press into the biscuits before you reached for more flour? 2) Why didn't you bake off the rest of that biscuit dough? Shame to waste the dough no matter what's left...
Nigel Hedley (2 months ago)
... these aren't biscuits ... these are scones ... biscuit is derived from bis cuit, meaning twice cooked ...

How do you think I high quality bread machine would do for the mixing? Ours has a mode like you would use to make home made bread
Nigel Riley (2 months ago)
It's a one minute job to mix by hand. You're really just combining the ingredients. Less washing up too!
Ken Click (2 months ago)
I have a bread machine and use it to make yeast bread/rolls. It would over-mix the dough for biscuits and take way too long.

Robert M (2 months ago)
The one that tilted and was on the left side of the oven was the second biscuit you made. When you pushed together the scraps after cutting the first one, it makes all the folds you made earlier go all cattywumpus and that is why it went sideways. If you don't get a clean cut on the sides it can do something similar.
Ken Click (2 months ago)
Yes, that's right.
Angie (2 months ago)
It’s interesting what things are called in different countries. In Australia you just made Scones. They are a sweet or dessert. The usual way of eating them is to open them up, spread Jam & Cream (real cream, not the fake spray stuff) and eat. They are delicious. The UK also eat them this way. We also call it Self-raising flour. You are a great teacher, your video was a pleasure to watch. I enjoyed it. Thank you.
Ken Click (2 months ago)

This is the tried and true old English method for scone making. Works every time. The Commonwealth countries call them scones from the 'mother country' name. When I worked as a cook, making breakfast and lunch for over 1000 daily, there was an even softer scone recipe I used with great success. The dough was even wetter, it had to be 'wrapped' in flour when tipped out of the floor mixer bowl onto the bench. It flowed across the bench and I used the scone cutter to push into the flowing flour covered dough. The scones were pushed up against each other on huge trays. They easily rose x4 in height with soft sides and crisp brown tops and bottoms. I made 1000's of 2" scones each morning for that day's morning tea sales! There was no kneading and folding. They rose due to the softness of the dough and lack of working. I either made them from scratch as shown in this recipe with cold SR Flour, cold butter and cold milk, or sometimes if I was time poor on the day I used a scone premix that already had the fat and milk powder incorporated. I just added cold water. But always the same results. They had to go into a very hot oven generally around the 450F mark which a domestic oven can't reach but only for 10-12 mins at most. The old wood or oil burning slow combustion stoves could reach 500F and scones were traditionally cooked at that temp. I also love reading about all this flour controversy regarding the names! Again from Britain came Self Raising Flour deceminated across all the Commonwealth countries almost a century ago. So we grew up buying both flours for our pantry. Plain flour or what you call utility or General Purpose flour is for making bread and other yeast foods, gravies and sauces, coating foods for cooking, etc. Its often a stronger type of flour. Specialized bread making flour and pasta making flours are stronger flours again. Self Raising Flour is for cake making. Its a less strong wheat that makes a soft flour. The raising agent is already added in the right proportion. The raising agent can be purchased separately and is called Baking Powder! It is made from bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar usually in equal portions. There is often aluminium added and or salt. Its all very confusing hey? Anyway I always have both flours (red pack is the SR flour and blue pack is the Plain flour) in the pantry. Its always easy to tell an American recipe because it calls for GP flour and baking soda (powder). Whereas an English (or Australian) recipe calls for either plain or SR Flour. What you call baking soda is what we call bi-carb soda. Our Baking powder has different ingredients as I mentioned above. Also we say self raising whereas you say self rising! :)

Their what we call scones in England !!! We use them normally for high tea with cream and jam ,or we use cheese for savoury !!!!although our methods to make scones are different and the textures of a English scone,is buttery and crumbly ,more cake like !! Is why we use them for high teas in England !!
