Baking Powder Biscuits

Yield: Makes 12 biscuits

Piping hot from the oven, these baking powder biscuits will complement any soup or stew.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons lard or shortening
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup milk

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in lard. Add milk, stirring slowly to make a soft dough. Turn mixture out onto floured surface, knead lightly several times, and shape into a ball. Roll out to 1/4- to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with round or heart-shaped cookie cutters or the rim of a juice glass. Bake 10 to 15 minutes on ungreased baking sheet.
