Biscuits – and we’re not talking out of a can

Well, spring break week is coming to a close, for some weird reason, I have not gotten to get my bake on. But tonight I did bust out some homemade biscuits. Tonight was breakfast for dinner. One of our family fav’s. They are sooooo simple, and sooooo much better than the canned ones. Just take 10 more minutes and make these. Your body will heart you for skipping most of the preservatives , and your family will thank you for some tasty biscuits.

2 1/4 c. flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

fluff together with pastry blender in a large bowl

blend in 1/2 c shortening ( I use butter flavor crisco sticks) with pastry blender until coarse pea like texture

1 c milk.

Add the milk and stir.

You could get out a mat, flour it, and roll your dough out and cut nice little circles. But because i’m usually in a hurry, I flour my hands and then shape them into circles and slap them on the baking pan.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes

And you get what you see above….. mmmmmm
