Easy Biscuit Recipe

 Cooking with Kids

Kids love baking. Here's the most basic recipe flaky biscuit recipe I found at These golden-brown rolls bake up tall, light, and tender. Let the kids help gather the ingredients, measure, mix, roll the dough, and cut out the biscuits. Be sure to serve the biscuits warm with butter or jam.

What You Need:

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
2/3 cup 2% milk

What to Do:

1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk egg and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

2. Turn onto a well-floured surface; knead 20 times. Roll to 3/4-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.

3. Bake at 450° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
