Ingredients

- 2 cups of flour
- 1 Tablespoon of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup shortening, lard, Crisco or butter
- 1 cup of milk (cream) or buttermilk
- if using buttermilk add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda)
- Optional. Add a little sugar if you prefer sweet rather than savory.

Preparation

Step 1

Mix the flour with the baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter/shortening until it resembles coarse meal. Stir milk or cream in to flour mixture. Mix quickly with fork until dough comes together.

Step 2

Using hands gently pat the ingredients together. Fold over once or twice or even three times if necessary. Do not over-handle.

Step 3

Pat out to about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick on a lightly floured board. Cut with biscuit cutters and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for approximately 12 to 15 minutes at 450°F.

Step 4

TIP: Using your finger push a little dent into the middle of the biscuit. This helps the biscuit rise straight and prevents it from tipping over as it rises.

Step 5

If making cheese biscuits add the mustard and cayenne to the dry ingredients and add the cheese after the shortening has been cut into the flour.

Step 6

Tip: An easy way to cut the butter into the flour is to use a box grater. The large side of the grater makes the perfect size pieces of butter.

Step 7

Options:
You can use any favourite cheese. Gorgonzola and other blue cheeses are wonderful with the addition of black pepper. Cheddar cheese is good with chives or green onions.
