Number of Servings: 8


    *Flour, white, 2 cup (remove)
    Cream of tartar, .5 tsp
    Baking Powder, 3 tsp
    Salt, .25 tsp
    Granulated Sugar, 2 tsp
    Butter, unsalted, .5 cup
    Milk, nonfat (skim milk), .67 cup


Combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter until it turns into course crumbles. Make a well. Add milk.
The dough will not be wet, but there shouldn't be any loose flour in the bowl. If there is, add milk 1 tbsp at a time. (No more -- it probably only needs 1.)
Roll dough onto lightly floured surface to about 1/2" thick. Cut with floured biscuit cutter or whatever's round and handy. Or use cookie cutters to make cute shapes -- but nothing too intricate. Hearts work well. Candy canes don't.
Place on ungreased baking sheet in 425 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned. They won't get very dark. Exact cooking time depends upon size and thickness.
Recipes Notes: The trick to biscuits it not to overwork the dough. You can take your scraps and reroll to get another few biscuits, but you may notice a difference between those and the ones cut from the first roll-out.
I'm not lying when I call these simple, even though there is a learning curve. Once you get the hang of them, you can throw these together in 10 minutes and you'll never buy another package of refrigerated biscuits again.
