How to Make Biscuits and Chili


  1. For the Biscuits:
    Preheat Oven 375 degrees:

    Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the softened margarine and crumble with your fingers.

    Make a well in the middle and add the milk and work into dough. Form into a ball.

    Flour a clean surface and roll out the dough to approximately ½ inch thick and cut into circles.

    Place biscuits in a cupcake tin to bake.

    Bake approximately 15 -20 minutes or until lightly golden.
