8 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
cream of tarter
4 Tbsp
sugar
1 tsp
salt
1 c
shortening
1 1/3 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift first five ingredients together into a bowl. Cut in shortening. Add milk slowly,then add beaten egg.I added some cheese. About 3/4 cup,but I could have added more as you could'nt really taste the cheese that much.Stir untill dough is stiff. Knead on a lightly floured board five times or untill good rolling consistency. Roll 1/2 inch thick. Cut to desired size for bisquits. Place on greased baking pan. Bake on 450 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
