Baking Powder Biscuits or Boredom on a Friday
So after the whining in my previous post I decided I needed some serotonin. Or cheese, either would do. I baked some baking powder biscuits (American-style biscuits, not British) last night.
I think this was the first recipe given to us during our cooking class in high school. Imagine a bunch of 11 and 12-year-olds trying to sift flour and not get any on our uniforms.
2 cups sifted flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup milk
1 cup grated cheese (optional)
Combine all dry ingredients, rub butter into the flour, add the cheese, then add the milk. Mix to make the dough. Shape the biscuits – you can use a cookie cutter if you want – or do what I did and just use a muffin pan.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 450 degree F or 230 degrees Centigrade.
I also added:
You can add bacon bits too if wanted.
I’ve eaten them with split pea soup. Perfect for today’s weather.
