Transcript:Baking Powder Biscuits

Hi, I am Gretchen Siegchrist for About.com Food, and I am going to show you how to make baking powder biscuits.

Ingredients for Baking Powder Biscuits

For this recipe, you'll need:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
You will also need a rolling pin, some extra flour so the dough does not stick, and something to cut out the biscuits. Either a cookie cutter or the top of a cup will do.

Combine the Biscuit Ingredients

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, shortening, baking powder, and salt. Stir these together until they are well mixed.

Now, we will add enough milk until we have a soft batter. About one cup should do.

Cut Out the Biscuits

Sprinkle your rolling surface with flour, and also coat your rolling pin. Roll out the dough until it is about half an inch thick, then cut out the biscuits.

Bake the Biscuits

Transfer the biscuits to a greased cookie sheet, and bake them until they begin to turn brown.
