I tried a recipe over the weekend, and I liked it! I've been looking for a simple good biscuit to make up quick to have with soup. They have cream cheese and green onions in them, so if that sounds good to you, try this recipe from the Gooseberry Patch cookbook, Made From Scratch.
Flaky Onion Biscuits2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 – oz. package cream cheese
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup green onion, finely chopped
2/3 cup milk
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in medium bowl; cut in cream cheese and shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs. Stir in green onions. Make a well in center of flour mixture; add milk, stirring only until dough begins to stick and forms a ball. Turn dough onto well-floured surface. Knead dough gently 10 to 15 times. Roll or pat dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out dough with 3-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 8 servings.
