Shortcake biscuits


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup milk or cream

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg and milk; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just to moisten. Lightly flour your hands and form dough into six biscuits. Bake on ungreased baking sheet for 10 minutes, until golden on top and firm to the touch.

Serves 6.
