These were easy and quick to make. I used the full amt of milk also. I rolled them out too thin but they are good. Made for Fall PAC 07

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine dry ingredients.
  2. Cut in shortening.
  3. add just enough milk to make the mixture moist, you probably won't use the full 1/2 cup.
  4. Knead lightly until smooth. Don't over do it. If you do, you will have a hard flat biscut instead of one that is light and fluffy.
  5. Press dough flat to 1/2 inch. Cut into 2 inch circles.
  6. Place biscuits shoulder to shoulder on ungreased baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes.
