If I haven't mentioned it before...I'm not perfect.
I know! Shocking isn't it?
Sometimes I have the best intentions of making a yummy loaf of yeast bread to go with a meal. But yeast bread takes time and sometimes I forget to start it and then it's too late to have it ready for a meal.
That's when I slip out this recipe and save my hiney with fresh bread that is fast. So if you're not perfect too, then maybe you'll have some use for this recipe.
Quick, Rich, Light, and Buttery Biscuits
3 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening (I use butter flavored)
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cups milk (sometimes soy, sometimes powdered)
- Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl.
- Cut in shortening.
- Add egg and milk until dough forms a ball.
- Knead on lightly floured surface 10-12 times only.
- Roll to 3/4 inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter. I use a drinking glass with a floured edge.
- Bake on lightly greased baking sheet for 12-15 minutes at 475 degrees or until lightly brown.
