Today the weather is gloomy and damp - a perfect day to get in the kitchen and do some baking! I wanted to share my hands down favorite tea biscuit recipe with you - it never lets me down!
2 cups flour
4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup shortening
Process the above ingredients in your food processor until coarse, then dump the mixture in a bowl and make a well in the center. Add 3/4 cup milk and stir together.
Remove from bowl and knead on a floured surface until smooth. Once kneaded roll out dough with your rolling pin to a 2" thickness and cut with biscuit cutter.
Place on pan and bake in 400* C oven for 10 minutes.
These are so good with a bit of butter and a cup of tea (or coffee)!
Have you done any baking lately? Do you prefer to cook or bake?
