Ranch House Biscuits

Ingredients

Biscuits

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk

Filling

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Biscuits: Combine all dry ingredients and blend well. Cut in butter. Add eggs and milk to the dry mixture, then blend until combined. If the mixture it too wet, add a little more flour. Spread dough out with flour-covered hands on a lightly floured area about 1/2 to 1 inch thick. Spread a thin layer of Filling over the biscuit dough and the remaining into a baking dish. Roll the biscuit dough up as a jellyroll. Slice into 1-inch pieces and place the pieces into the wet baking dish (stick the biscuit pieces together like a puzzle). Bake uncovered.
  3. When done, turn out immediately by placing a plate over the baking pan, turning the whole thing upside down, away from your body. Lift the baking dish off the biscuits and let it set up for a few minutes. Serve warm.
  4. Filling: Mix the ingredients.

Variations

Add 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup or more of chopped walnuts over the bottom of the baking dish before adding anything else.
