Chicken Biscuits

Yield about 3 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Vegetable oil
  • Cream gravy (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Sift together dry ingredients; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

  2. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, and lightly knead 4 to 5 times.

  3. Roll dough into a 7- x 5-inch rectangle; cut into thirty-five 1- inch squares. Heat 3 to 4 inches of oil to 375°; drop in 6 or 7 squares at a time. Cook 3 minutes on one side or until golden brown; turn and cook other side about 3 minutes. Drain. Serve with cream gravy, if desired.

  4. Note: These are also delicious served with syrup or molasses
