Makin' Biscuits

CMW enjoyed helping out with dinner biscuits a few days ago.
I also enjoy when she helps out, even if flour gets everywhere...
It's time together like this with out Miss E that she really cherishes!

cutting out biscuits
and placing them on the baking sheet

Here is the recipe we use, nothing fancy and it's not like biscuits are that healthy anyway... but still we enjoy them every once in a while.

Baking powder biscuits
4c. flour (i use whole wheat organic flour)
2 T. baking powder
2 T. sugar
2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. cold butter
1 1/4 c. milk approx.

Mix the dry ingredients together, then shred the butter into the dry mix. (I cut mine in chunks and then use a pastry cutter to blend in.) Add milk gradually just until the dough pulls away from the bowl.

Knead about 15 times
roll into a 1" thickness
then cut with glass
place on baking sheet

Bake at 425 degrees
Time: 13-15 minutes
Amount: depends on size of glass
