Cowboy biscuits

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Flour
3 teaspoons Baking powder
1 teaspoon Salt
½ cup Lard or shortening
¾ cup Milk
2 tablespoons Milk

In a mixing bowl, stir the dry ingredients together and cut in lard or shortening until the mixture has the texture of coarse meal.

Stir in ¾ cup milk a little at a time until mixture forms a smooth dough. Turn out onto a floured board and knead lightly. Roll on floured board to ½ inch thickness and cut with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter.

Place biscuits on ungreased baking sheet and brush tops with the remaining milk. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

For drop biscuits, add up to 1 cup milk to the flour mixture. Do not knead the dough. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake as for rolled biscuits.

Yield: 1 dozen 2-inch biscuits. Submitted By WESLEY PITTS On 10-17-94
