Here is the second part of yesterday’s meal!
The biscuits turned out great!
I’ve had this recipe written down from high school and yesterday was the first time I actually attempted it outside of the classroom!
I like to put a decent amount of pepper in this recipe because we like the extra kick, but you can limit how much you put in depending on your preference.
What you will need:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold shortening
1 cup milk
2-3 tablespoons of pepper (I used a four pepper blend)
First, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, pepper, and salt in a bowl. Cut the shortening into the mix with a pastry cutter. Slowly pour in the milk into the mixture until everything is smooth. Put the dough out onto a floured surface, and roll it out to about an inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut the biscuits. Put the biscuits on a cookie sheet and bake at 425 for 15-17 minutes depending on your oven. Make sure the tops are a nice golden brown and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy the recipe! :)
