    Rhonda *J*'s Note:

    Growing up Mom always (and still does) served these hot out of the oven with our beef stew. We slathered them with lots of butter & molasses and now the two recipes just go together! We can't have beef stew without them now! I cut them fairly thick for a nice fluffy biscuit. Also good with butter & strawberry jam!

    1. 1
      Mix all dry ingredients together.
    2. 2
      With pastry blender cut in butter.
    3. 3
      Add milk and mix well to form dough.
    4. 4
      Knead just a few times until smooth on a floured surface.
    5. 5
      DO NOT overwork, handle as little as possible.
    6. 6
      Roll to desired thickness and cut with a floured cutter or bottom of drinking glass.
    7. 7
      (I tend to cut them fairly thick so I never get the maximum 14 biscuits, more like 10-12!).
    8. 8
      Bake at 375 for 12-13 minutes.
    9. 9
      (I find it only takes about 10 minutes in my particular oven).

      just like the ones my mom makes! I dust them with sugar before baking, and I serve them with stew. Yummy!

      These biscuits rose up nice and fluffy, and were very easy to make. I have saved the recipe to my permanent collection, but I will cut down the sugar to at least half next time. They are quite sweet for serving along side a savoury stew, but fit the bill for serving with jam. I recommend the recipe, with adjustments to the sugar when necessary.
