Basic Flakey Biscuits


Basic Flakey Biscuits recipe













Trans-fat Free


3 ¼ cups cake flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons butter
or margarine, or vegetable shortening
1 each eggs
lightly beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons milk
1 x vegetable shortening
1 x cornmeal
for coating pan


Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃).

In a food processor or a large bowl, mix 3 cups of the flour with the salt, sugar and baking powder.

Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture is textured like cornmeal.

Separately mix the egg with the milk, and stir all but 2 tablespoon of this liquid into the dry mixture.

Mix just enough to make a uniformly moistened dough.

Dust a clean work surface with ½ the remaing flour, and turn the dough out onto the floured surface.

Sprinkle the top with the rest of the flour, and with floured hands, gently push the dough into a circle about ½ inch thick.

Cut with a 2 or 3 inch biscuit cutter, and place the cut buscuits close together on a greased corn meal coated cookie sheet.

You will get about 12 biscuits.

Brush the tops of the buscuits with the reserved milk egg mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven until puffed and brown, about 15 minutes.

Cool for a few minutes before serving.

Note: Dried fruits can be added to batter.
