I used the recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook...
|3 cups of flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup butter
1 cup of milk
Preheat your oven to 450 deg. F. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Add milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until mixture is moist. You don't want to over work your dough!
Turn dough onto lightly flowered surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it for four to six strokes until dough holds together. Roll dough flat until it is one inch thick. To cut the dough use a biscuit cutter...or if you don't have one use what ever clean round thing you have. Ha Ha...
Now place your dough circles slightly apart on your ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10-14 min. or until golden brown.
Remove from oven and serve warm. I also like to drizzle a little honey over mine. :)
So I had a great time shopping and I found several cute things that I will blog about later. yay! The Hubs and the boys had a great time too, especially with nice full bellies.
