I love these biscuits… they melt in your mouth! Not only that but they take 20 minutes to make start to finish!! Sure beats those tubes of biscuits you pick up in the refrigerated section at the grocery store… How fresh are those?? See any ingredients on the back you can’t even sound out??? And then compare to price for one tube to this recipe… Pennies on the dollar!
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 cups flour
1 TBLS baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 TBLS sugar
1/3 cups shortening
1 cup milk
Pre-Heat oven to 425 degrees
In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
Cut in the shortening
Should look a little something like this :-)
Add 1/2 your milk and mix
Then add the remaining milk and mix… Should be looking like this
Flour your surface and pull the dough out… Coat all sides with some flour and kneed about 15 to 20 times… do not over do it!
Should look a little something like this… Flatted it out in a rectangle with your hands
Roll the rest out… Keep it a little on the thick side
Here’s a good trick… Grab one end and fold it over… That way when they are done its easy to cut them down the middle and open them up!
You could totally use a biscuit cutter and cut them out… But I just like to slice them so there no wasted dough at the end!
Place on greased pan and bake at 425 degrees for 13-15 minutes
Pull them out and let cool for a few minutes…
I like to brush some butter across the top… Makes them pretty! ;-)
