- Ready In:
- Sift dry ingredients. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until crumbly.
- Stir in milk until mixture comes together. Empty onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 5 or 6 times just to form a ball. Pat down then roll to about 1/2 thick with a rolling pin. Cut into circles and place on a baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes at 425.
Wonderful creamy tasting biscuits that you can whip up almost as an afterthought. Made as directed except that I pretty much doubled the salt. This is the second time that I've made this recipe and I noted last ti,e that I would add some extra the next time I made them. These would be the ideal base for biscuits and gravy! Can we say "down home"? Made for Photo Tag
Thank gosh I found *THESE* I needed something quick, easy, and oh-so-delicious. I really needed it. You are my bread person to come to, after all, I have made lots of your bread over the past week, past months...etc...etc. Go ahead, look up the author's recipes. I highly, highly recommend them, my turn to person for great bread, quick, and oh so tasty. I made this exactly. Exactly. I wanted to test the baking soda amount per ratio to the rest of the flour/shortening...etc combo. It worked for me perfectly. But as we all know, breads can be a mystery at times. From weather conditions, to flours, to all kinds of variables. Either way, this worked perfectly for us. Made, rolled, in toaster oven, and out right into my DH stomach with a coddie cake in between. Beautiful! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* July 2009.
