Patrick Bakes Biscuits

Patrick has been learning to cook and seems to have a knack for baking.  He is pleased to know it is in the blood, as his ancestors on his father’s side owned a bakery.  He was not too proud to wear the flowery apron.  (I offered the patriotic one that I was wearing, but he is secure in his masculinity.)

2 cups Self- rising flour
1/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
2/3-1/4 cups Rice milk or Almond milk

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Measure flour into bowl.
  • Cut in Crisco with a pastry blender until mixture resembles course cornmeal.
  • Blend in just enough mild with a fork until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface.  Knead gently few turns.  If dough is too sticky to handle, knead in a little more flour.

  • Roll out the dough to roughly 1/2 inch thickness (he goes for less). Cut with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter or other suitable object. Patrick uses a tall glass.
