The real fun in "making biscuits" comes when it's time to cut the biscuits. The kids like patting the dough flat, they also like making the circles in the dough with the lid. But the BEST part is when there are extra dough scraps all over the work table.....my Anna calls that "skin". The kids scramble to see how much "biscuit skin" they can gobble up before I try get a few more biscuits cut saying,"Don't eat all the skin!!!"
Anna's Biscuits (from Grandma)
2 cups of self-rising flour (or all-purpose mixed with 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup milk (soymilk or apple juice)
Mix dry ingredients. Stir wet ingredients together and then pour into flour mixture. Knead well, roll and pat. Cut biscuits (we use the lid to a vegetable spray can).
Cook at 350 for 10-15 minutes (when Brian makes them he cooks them at a higher temperature....just watch them so they don't dry out).
