Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time 10-12

Ingredients

2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
1/4 cup basil pesto
1/2 cup milk
Finely shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired


1. Heat oven to 450°F. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening and pesto, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in just enough milk so dough leaves side of bowl and forms a ball.


2. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 2 1/2-inch cookie or biscuit cutter. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cheese.


3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm.
