Serves 24 | Prep Time 20 | Cook Time 10-12 mins

Ingredients

* 2 cups all purpose flour
* 1 tablespoon sugar, optional
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 3/4 teaspoon salt
* 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled, cut in small pieces
* 2 tablespoons shortening, chilled
* 3/4 cup milk, low fat or whole


Heat oven to 450°.



Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together into a mixing bowl. With a pastry cutter, cut in the butter and shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in milk just until clumping. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times, just until the dough holds together. Pat into a circle about 1/4 to 1/2-inch in thickness. Cut out with a 1 or 2-inch diameter round cutter. Place the rounds on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.


Makes about 2 dozen, depending on size

Notes

Use these little biscuits to make mini strawberry shortcakes, or serve with small slices of ham or sausage gravy. These make a great base for passed hors d'oeuvres.
