"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
2 cups flour 4 tsp baking powder 2 tsp sugar 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp cream of tartar 1/2 cp shortening 3/4 cup milk
In a bowl, combine dry ingredients. Cut in shortening until mixture resembled coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir quickly with fork just until mixed. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 º for 10-12 minutes or lightly browned. Makes one dozen.
