supreme Bisquits













I decided to make biscuits tonight. This is a good recipes that make a round a dozen depending on the size you make. You can have the choice to use all butter or with shortening and better milk or just milk.  I suggest using whole milk.


Supreme Biscuits

3  cups all-purpose flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

3/4 cup butter or 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening

1 1/2 cups butter milk or 1 cup milk

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add the buttermilk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing dough for 4 – 6 strokes or just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough until 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough with a floured 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter.

Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 450 F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Remove from sheet and serve immediately.
