Baking Powder Biscuits

I think the sign of a good recipe is one where the page is splattered with food, maybe you've had to re-write words because you've spilled some sort of liquid that's deteriorating the page. You're not quite sure if it says to cook for 8 minutes or 80 minutes because the page is getting so thin. I hope you all have recipes like that! When I went to college my mom gave me a notebook full of recipes. Everything was hand written and I treasured it. It was packed with all the recipes I would need to survive. The very first one is for Baking Powder Biscuits. It's one of those recipes pages that's seen many better days. Which should be incentive enough for you to try it out.

Baking Powder Biscuits
4 cups flour
8 Tbs. shortening
8 tsp. baking pwd.
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups milk

Cut shortening into dry ingredients with pastry cutter or fork. Stir in milk quickly. Dough should be soft and light NOT sticky. (more or less milk may be needed) Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutter or small cup. Place on greased baking pan. Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes.

I just made a large batch of these biscuits so I could have breakfast sandwiches in the freezer (GREAT for fast easy breakfasts on the go). Make your biscuits a little thicker and a litter larger. When they are cooled- add a sausage patty or ham slice, egg patty and a slice of cheese. (I got sausage patty's and egg patty's at Wal-mart in the frozen breakfast isle). Throw in the freezer to have on hand or serve them hot.

Food is FUN!
