BillyBob's Bodacious Biscuits

Ingredients:

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1 beaten egg
2/3 cup milk

Optional additions: small chunks of cheese, bacon crumbled, basil, raisins, cinnamon and sugar, cranberries, chopped nuts, oat meal, you get the picture anything that seems right or interesting.

Method:

1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Thoroughly combine the dry ingredients.
2. Cut in the butter until it resembles small peas. Beat the egg with the milk and stir it in just until all the flour is dampened.
3. Turn the dough onto a floured board and knead 2 or 3 times, then roll out 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick and cut with a soup can, or a tuna can.
4. Re-roll scraps or just bake as is (scraps will be lighter textured than re-rolled biscuits).
5. Place biscuits, well separated, on an ungreased baking sheet and bake until risen and nicely browned, about 15 to 20 minutes

I believe it! That's the sign of a good and creative cook. I am mostly a recipe follower myself.
