Peanut Biscuits

Yield about 2 dozen


  • 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup finely ground dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • Peanut butter (optional)
  • Grape jelly (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Sift together flour, ground peanuts, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk, stirring with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened.

  2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead 4 to 5 times.

  3. Roll dough to 3/4-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on greased baking sheets. Bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve hot with peanut butter and jelly, if desired.
