Christmas Biscuits

  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2/3 c. milk
  • 2/3 c. shortening
  1. Mix ingredients together. 
  2. Knead and add flour until the dough is not sticky. 
  3. Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thick. 
  4. Use a gingerbread man cookie cutter for the shape. 
  5. Put on ungreased cookie sheet. 
  6. Bake at 425 degrees until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. 
  7. Take them out of pan and put on cooling rack while they are hot.

I'm over sugar and the Holidays aren't even over. It's not so much that I am over sugar as I am over my son eating sugar. That kid could eat sugar all day long.

So instead of cookies I made some biscuits, still sweet but not too bad. I had mine with Jam but he was fine having his plain.

Hope your Christmas is sweet (with or without sugar).
Merry Christmas.
