    NancyAnne's Note:

    I call these Grandma Love's biscuits, but really they came off of the Clabber Girl Baking Powder can, although it is not there anymore. Grandma always served these on Christmas morning or with gravy at Grandpa's request. Twenty years later, they are still my favorite biscuit.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    biscuit ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 425°F
    2. 2
      Sift together into a bowl the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cream of tartar.
    3. 3
      Add the butter or margarine. With a fork or a pastry blender cut the butter in util the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the milk and the egg, just until combined. Turn the dough onto a floured board and knead lightly 4 or 5 strokes. Roll or pat (being careful to handle the dough as little as necessary) into a 1/2-3/4-inch thick round. Cut with a biscuit cutter and place on an ungreased baking sheet, farther apart if you like crispy edges, and closer together if you like them soft.
    4. 4
      Bake at 425F for 10-15 minutes. (For elevations of 500 feet or more use 4 teaspoons of baking powder.).

      Made these for breakfast with homemade sausage gravy, everyone loved them. I followed the directions exactly. First time I had ever made biscuits that included egg. It's hard to beat some of those old clabber girl recipes!!
