Biscuits Supreme

Ingredients
1
tablespoon baking powder*
1
tablespoon sugar
1
teaspoon salt
3/4
teaspoon cream of tartar*
3/4
cup butter or 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup shortening
1
cup milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a large bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cream of tartar. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing dough for four to six strokes or just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough until 3/4 inch thick. Cut dough with a floured 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary.
  3. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until golden. Remove biscuits from baking sheet and serve warm.
  4. Makes 12 biscuits.
