BISCUITS FOR 2
Biscuits for two....what a great idea!! I can't tell you how many biscuits I've thrown away because they were stale before we could eat a whole batch, but not anymore!!
This quick and easy recipe
makes 4 delicious biscuits.
1 cup all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 cup COLD butter
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400° and grease a baking sheet.
Mix the dry ingredients together. Cut the COLD butter into very small cubes and add them to the dry ingredients. Cut the butter into the flour mixture until it looks like coarse crumbs.
Add milk and stir just until everything is moistened (don't overmix)
Turn out onto a lightly floured counter and knead 8-10 times. Dough might seem a little sticky at first, but it will come together nicely after you knead it a few times.
Pat or roll dough to 1/2" thickness and cut with floured 2 1/2" biscuit cutter (the floured rim of a drinking glass will work too).
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden.
Brush with butter when they are hot out of the oven. Makes 4 biscuits.
