Sweet Biscuits for Breakfast or Shortcake Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  1. 2cupsall-purpose flour(I measure by fluffing up the flour, then dipping the metal cup into the canister and shaking the flo)
  2. 1/4cupall-purpose flour, for patting out the dough
  3. 1teaspoon regulartable salt
  4. 1tablespoonbaking powder
  5. 3/4cuppowdered sugar
  6. 1/4lb ice coldunsalted butter, if you have european style butter,use that
  7. 3/4cuphalf-and-half

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400, I place a rack in lowest position in the oven.
  2. Combine dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in butter.
  4. Stir in liquid until it just begins to pull from the sides- it will be pretty moist.
  5. Spread 1/4 C flour on a pastry board and dump the dough onto the flour.
  6. Gently turn the dough until all sides are covered with flour.
  7. Knead by gently rubbing the dough into the flour, a scant 8 to 10 turns.
  8. Pat the dough into a 1 inch thich slab.
  9. Cut into rounds with a sharp round biscuit cutter- I use a 2 1/2 inch cutter– you can push the scraps together to make room to cut a few more, try not to knead it too much.
  10. Place on insulated cookie sheet about 1/2 inch apart.
  11. Put in HOT oven and bake for 12- 15 minutes.
  12. You can test by lifting the top layer of the center biscuit; if it’s done it will look dry inside and the edges will be golden.
  13. (I get 9 biscuits when I use a 2 1/2″ cutter).
