Yield: 12 biscuits

Cleaning out the fridge. One of the worst household chores, in my opinion. Who knows what slimy monstrous creatures you'll find in the deep corners of the fridge? Sometimes I...

    They look lovely and so simple!
    I added some sunflower seeds to mine so I could pack in more goodness!

    I have not tried this recipe yet but I regularly make home made baking powder biscuits. I am sure that these will be very good biscuits. I usually mix my biscuit dough in a bowl by hand. I think the food processor is too time consuming and messy. I use cold vegetable shortening and sometimes add cold butter also. I start out mixing the shortening/butter into the flour with a table fork then finish up using my fingers until I get the right crumble look. I knead it about four times then form it into a ball. Then sometimes I roll it out with a rolling pin to 1/2 in or so, and some times I just pound it flat with my hands. Sometimes I make a egg and milk wash and paint the top of the biscuits which makes the tops come out a beautiful brown color. Then I cut out round biscuits with a cookie cutter and bake at 405 for 14 minuites. ( A hotter oven is ok too)
    I noticed that you put your biscuit dough in the fridge before baking. I try different recipes from time to time and I tried one where after adding the chortning/butter the dry mix is put back into the freezer for 15 mins or so, and I liked those biscuits very much. Sometimes I will make my biscuit dough a little wetter than normal by adding a little extra milk. I don’t use a cookie cutter on these because the dough is so soggy but they come out very light and fluffy. I have used the word “sometimes” several times because I don’t always follow the same recipe. There is no such thing as a bad biscuit. πŸ™‚ ( I have never reviewed or responded to a recipe or anything else before so this is my first).

    Butter is a dairy product made by churning fresh or fermented cream or milk. It is generally used as a spread and a condiment, as well as in cooking, such as baking, sauce making, and pan frying. Butter consists of butterfat, milk proteins and water.^
