Pesto Biscuits
  • Cooking Time: 10-12
  • 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. 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. 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. 3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm.
