Home-made Biscuits!!! Yes, Please.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tbs baking powder
  • 2 Tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup of shortening
  • 2 cup of milk or buttermilk

 

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
  2. In a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in the shortening. until what’s in the bowl resembles coarse meal.
  4. Gradually stir in the milk until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. If your dough seems too sticky, add a tablespoon or two more flour. If it’s too dry, add more milk.
  5. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface. Knead the dough. You don’t want to over work it. Just until there are no sticky parts. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use a round cookie cutter (or the rim of a glass/mug) to punch out the biscuits.

Place the cut outs onto a greased cookie pan. Place in the oven for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the tops and edges start to brown.
