Mini Biscuit Batch

Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell a Friend Next Entry
I've tried cutting down my family biscuit recipe to something more reasonable for two people before with marginal success. Tonight I tried a little something different and I like the results.

For about 4 biscuits:

Mix 1 tsp apple cider vinegar with milk to make 1/3cup and let stand 5-10 minutes

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp shortening (or lard)

Shift together the dry ingredients then cut in the shortening until it resembles cornmeal. Add milk mixture a dollop at a time until the mix just comes together into a dough. You might need either a bit more or a bit less liquid, if you need more just use regular milk. Do not handle the dough more than necessary.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and pat down so it is about half an inch thick. Cut into biscuits, reforming scraps gently.

Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes.
