Home Style Baking Powder Biscuits
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 2 c
- all purpose flour, sifted
- 5 tsp
- baking powder
- 1 tsp
- 4 Tbsp
- shortening (can use butter flavor if desired)
- 1 c
- 3 Tbsp
- melted butter or margarine (for brushing on top)
Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Using a pastry cutter, cut in shortening until it is of a coarse mealy consistency.
(**Note) I also heard on the new show "The Chew" that when you are cutting biscuits, it is best to use a metal cutter... For some reason they say the biscuits rise better! Who knew?!! :-)
Bon Apetit' Y'all!!
