Baking Powder Biscuits Recipe

April 12th, 2012 by alice  Tags: , , | Print This Post Print This Post

INGREDIENTS

  1. 4cupsflour
  2. 8teaspoonsbaking powder
  3. 1teaspoonsalt
  4. 1cupCrisco
  5. 2tablespoonssugar
  6. 2large beateneggs
  7. 1 1/2cupsmilk

DIRECTIONS

  1. Sift together flour and baking powder.
  2. Stir in salt and sugar.
  3. Cut in the Crisco until the mixture resembles crumbs.
  4. Stir together eggs and milk.
  5. Make a well in the dry mixture and stir in the milk mixture with a fork.
  6. Stir just to moisten, then turn out onto a lightly floured board.
  7. Knead about 15 times, then pat lightly into a circle, about 1/2-inch thick.
  8. (The secret to light and fluffy biscuits is to handle the dough as little as possible) With a sharp round cutter, cut out rounds, without twisting the cutter.
  9. Just give it a sharp tap, then lift straight up (twisting the cutter causes the biscuits to slope over when they are baking) place on a baking sheet.
  10. Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes.
  11. Serve warm.
