Baking Powder Biscuits

Frugal Favorite Dinner Food

 

biscuits

 

Biscuits have always been a popular dinner food.  Our ancestors would make gravy with a few meat chunks and pour it over the biscuits.  That would be their dinner.  Now we eat biscuits as a side dish.

 

Biscuits are very frugal to make.  The secret to soft, flaky biscuits is not to use too much liquid.  The amount of liquid baked products need often depends on the weather.  Use less liquid (in this case milk),  when possible.

 

Have a "soft hand" with the flour.  Be gentle when you stir or kneed the batter.

 

Ingredients

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp cold margarine
3/4 cup milk

 

Preheat the oven to 450

 

Cut the dry ingredients into the margarine with 2 knives or a pastry cutter. 

 

Add the milk.  Milk lightly with a fork until flour forms a soft dough ball and then kneed lightly (about 20 times) until the dough is soft.

 

Roll 1/2-inch thick.  Cut into 2 or 3-inch circles.

 

Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
