Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 2 c
- all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp
- 1/2 tsp
- cream of tartar
- 1 bunch
- 1 Tbsp
- baking powder
- 1/2 c
- butter flavored shortening, frozen
- 2/3 c
- cold milk
1Sift dry ingredients or mix well with a wire wisk. Shred frozen shortening into flour or cut in with a pastry blender if you don't have frozen shortening. Make well and add milk to flour mixture. Stir until almost blended.
2Turn out onto floured surface and knead about 5-10 times
Pat or roll out into a rectangle about 12x4 Dip bench scraper or knife into flour and cut straight down the middle and then into 8 total pieces.
3Bake on an ungreased sheet in a 450 degree oven for 10-15 minutes If you place the biscuits just touching they clime higher than if you place them not touching.
4After I pat them out I fold the dough letter style, then pat out again, fold and then pat and fold one last time. I believe that is the trick to the many layers.
