I really hate breakfast time lately. We’ve been trying to scale back from cereal as its expensive (we usually go through two boxes per meal).
Anyway, besides the French toast which I mentioned here previously, another one of our breakfast favorites is biscuits.
Here’s my current favorite recipe for big, fluffy biscuits. I learned to stop being so cheapy and not roll out the dough so thin so we could have bigger biscuits. 🙂 (We used to eat biscuit “cookies” due to my being “frugal”) 🙂
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
- Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead 15 to 20 times. Pat or roll dough out to 1 inch thick. Cut biscuits with a large cutter or juice glass dipped in flour. Repeat until all dough is used. Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake for 13 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to brown.
