Great smothered in country gravy! These biscuits never turn out bad! I triple this recipe (yes, I did say triple) for my family of 7. We always have leftovers...which the kids eat the next day with jam.

WOW!!! I've been trying to make biscuits for years, and these are just what I've been looking for. My neighbor suggested finding a recipe with cream of tartar, and I think that made all the difference. They were light and flaky. I used half margarine & half crisco, and they were delish!!! Can't wait to make them for our yearly treat of sausage gravy & biscuits for the crowd at the cottage this summer.
- 2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 3⁄4 cup milk
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients. Cut in margarine until mixture looks like coarse oatmeal. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and pour the milk in the well. Stir dough until it begins to pull together. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface.
- Press dough together and roll out until 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 2-u=inch round biscuits. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake in preheated oven for 9 minutes, or until golden brown.
