Famous and not so famous recipes – who are you to decide? Who am I to decide?

World famous biscuits

3 cups flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 tbsp white sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cream of tartar
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup milk
1 medium egg

Makes: A bunch of biscuits (sorry, they don’t last long enough to count),
but using a small cutter the recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen I believe.

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar together

Cut in shortening until mixture is course with particles the size of peas.

Make a well in the center of mixture; pour in half the milk and mix gently.

Add egg with remaining milk to mixture and mix lightly with a fork.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Roll or pat to thickness of 1/2-inch
to 3/4-inch.

Cut with lightly floured cutter. Place on cookie sheet and bake in a 400°F
oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
