This is one of many versions of biscuits. My mom & sister had/have the better skill but I try. Isn't it weird how the same recipe turns out differently, when made by a different person? Another simple & delicious recipe for new bakers & kids to try out! Get them in the kitchen young! Watch me make it here.

Quick & Easy Homemade Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour, sifted
  • 2.5 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 4.5 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425°F/218°C.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients into a bowl.
  3. Then cut in shortening, until mixture resembles course oatmeal. You can use your fingers, 2 forks or a pastry cutter.
  4. Beat in eggs and milk.
  5. Then add to dry ingredients, lightly mixing until mixture holds together. Do not knead or over mix.
  6. I add most but not all of the liquid to the flour mixture, to start. Sometimes I use it all, other times I do not.
  7. Roll out on a lightly floured surface.
  8. About an inch thick.
  9. Bake at 425°F/218°C until golden brown. About 9-11 minutes.
  10. Do not over bake. A dry biscuit is a bad biscuit.

Notes
