NANA ROBERTSON’S BAKING POWDER BISCUITS – 9 biscuits – 450F -10 to 12 min.

2 Cups Flour
4 tsp. Baking Powder
2 Tblsp. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Cream of Tartar

Cut in 1/2 cup grated Butter (or Margarine)with a Pastry Blender or fork.

If you want cheese biscuits, add some grated old cheddar now. (about 27 grates)

Add 2/3 Cup or so of Milk; knead lightly.

Either press to an 8x5 rectangle to use a 2 ˝ inch cutter or make a long roll on the wax paper; mark into 9 biscuit sections and cut with a sharp knife or scissors & form into a biscuit.
Bake @450 degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes.

The dough will be a bit sticky, so that is why you need a floured surface
to roll it out on. The 2/3 of a cup of milk is the measurement we use
because Alberta has such a dry climate. You may need to use less liquid.
Try it with 2/3 Cup milk and knead in a bit of extra flour and then you
can determine if you need to reduce the liquid or just knead & roll out
with extra flour.

I make up 2 or 3 little bags of everything but the milk and store them in the fridge. Then when we feel like biscuits, I just have to add the (cheese ) milk;
cut/form the biscuits while the oven is heating up and bake them.
Uncle Don likes them for dessert with my homemade, seedless raspberry freezer jam.
