Butter Biscuits

MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: meriel
Recipe Category: Bread
Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
    Preheat the oven to 425. Serve these warm with butter and honey...

    2 cups all-purpose flour +
    1/4 cup for kneading

    1 TBSP baking powder

    1TSP salt

    1/3 cup solid vegetable shortening

    1 cup milk

    1/4 cup butter, melted

    1. Combine flour baking soda and salt in large mixing bowl. Blend well.

    2. Add shortening in one piece, then roll it around to coat it with flour. Break up the lump of shortening into 4 or 5 smaller pieces and coat them with flour.

    3. Quickly and lightly, rub the shortening and flour between your thunb and fingers. Lift your hands and let the belnded flour and shortening fall back into the bowl. Repeat, reaching to the bottom of the bowl and scooping up the loose flour. Continue until the misture looks like small, irregular crumbs.

    4. Add milk all at one to mixture. Stir with fork just until no streaks of flour remain. The dough will be moist and sticky, which allows the biscuits to rise high and remain tender.

    5. Sprinkle the 1/4 cup flour over a work surface and spread it into a circle. Transfer the dough to the flour and then flip it over so there is an even coating of flour on both sides. Knead the dough like bread about ten times, using a light hand. If the dough sticks, sprinkle on a little more flour.

    6. Pat dough into 8 in. square about 1/2 in. thick. You can cut biscuits into any shape you like.

    7. Dip top and bottom of shaped biscuits into melted butter. Place in baking pan, leaving little room between each.

    8. Bake for 12 minutes on the center rack of oven, then check the top for browning. If golden, lift one from the pan, and break open. If sticky inside, return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes.

    Let rest for 3 to 5 minutes before serving. Leftovers may be stored in an airtight container overnight, or freezed for longer storage. Reheat before serving.
