Great and simple. Followed everything except I used margarine instead of butter. Tasted good. I got 12 biscuts from the recipe and they didn't last long in the house at all!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and cream of tartar.
  2. Cut in butter until fine.
  3. Add milk, stirring quickly with a fork, just to moisten.
  4. Knead gently on a floured board. (Don't handle any more than you have to-- just enough to blend the ingredients)
  5. Roll out to 1 inch thick and cut out biscuits. (A drinking glass works well for this.)
  6. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
