Homemade Tea Biscuits

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!

Tea Biscuits

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?
