My mom's recipe for light, easy biscuits has saved me a few times when I need a quick soup accompaniment. I know everyone must have a biscuit recipe but I just don't want to lose my tried-and-true morsels of flaky goodness.
This is also a reason why I love my food processor - "cut in the butter" was my least favourite instruction ever until I discovered these wonderful whirl-y blades.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup shortening (margarine is fine)
- 3/4 cup milk for molded biscuits - 1 cup for "dropped" biscuits
Serve hot with butter (obviously)!
