Biscuits Supreme, Better Homes and Gardens

Better Homes and Gardens red and white checked cookbook is my absolute go-to when I need a new recipe, or anything else cooking related. Especially their biscuits. They are soft, fluffy, buttery and divine. Make them and do a quick taste test. Let me know!

2 cups flour (white, wheat or half and half. They all work)
2 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cream of tartar 
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, margarine or shortening
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450

Combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center. Add 2/3 cup milk all at once; stir until moistened.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Quickly knead dough by gently folding and pressing dough 10-12 strokes or till nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut dough with a 2.5 inch biscuit cutter.

Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot. Makes 10 biscuits
