- Ready In:
24 biscuits (or so)
- Heat oven to 425°F
- Sift together into a bowl the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cream of tartar.
- 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.
- Bake at 425F for 10-15 minutes. (For elevations of 500 feet or more use 4 teaspoons of baking powder.).

I'm a mom of seven and grandma to four (so far) living in Bloomington, Indiana. Now that the kids are raised I have been able to go back to work as the assistant manager at My Sister's Closet, a local not-for-profit upscale clothing thrift store that provides low income and at-risk women with interview and getting-started outfits appropriate for their new job. I'm also a certified personal trainer and health coach, although I no longer use these certifications.
