This is what I’m having this morning with eggs, tomatoes and onion. I usually make biscuits with butter, but today I tried a recipe that calls for shortening. Not too bad. The shortening made rolling out the dough easy. Dough made with butter can get greasy if it gets too warm.
Per a friend’s request, here’s the recipe:
1/2 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1 tbsp. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
Cut the shortening into the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Pour in enough milk to make a soft dough. Pat or roll out. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
