Sweet Biscuits

Yield 1dozen

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening or butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten

How to Make It

  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal.

  2. Combine milk and egg, stirring well; pour evenly over flour mixture, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 3 or 4 times. Roll to 1-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/4-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

  4. Note: Sweet Biscuits may be frozen until needed.
