Baking Powder Biscuits

Another potluck lunch at the office, and I took another easy way out. But these really are great, and ridiculously simple.

Cheddar Cheese Baking Powder Biscuits!

Ingredients

  • 2 c flour
  • 4 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t cream of tartar
  • 2 t sugar
  • 1/2 c shortening
  • 2/3 c milk

Instructions

Sift the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cut in the shortening. (Optional: Add grated cheese.) Stir in milk. Knead. Pat out to 1/2″-3/4″ thick. Cut with floured cutter. Bake at 450F (230C) for 10-15 minutes.

Makes 6-16 biscuits, depending on size. (This recipe would probably only make 6 of the large pictured biscuits).
