Biscuit Recipe For More Than Just Biscuits

I found this biscuit recipe online, and used it for... well, biscuits... with homemade sausage gravy, and it was great.  But then I thought... "Hey, I'll bet I can use this biscuit dough for all sorts of things."  And what do you know,  I was right!

  • Loosely mix together 2 cups of loose flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Now use a fork to cut in 1/2 cup of shortening.
  • When there is no more loose powdery flour, and it mix has the consistency of course bread crumbs, then stir in 3/4 cups of milk.
  • Combine it with the fork until the mix turns to a sticky dough.
  • With floured hands, pull the dough away from the bowl, and slightly knead together into a ball. Lightly flour the outside of the dough ball, until no longer sticky.
  • Roll out, and cut into circles.
  • Bake at 450 for ten minutes.
The thickness of the dough depends on what you're going to use it for. These biscuits really don't rise, so may I suggest cutting them a tad bigger than 1/4 inch thick. But they are slightly "dense", so roll it thinner if you're going to... say...

Have These... with ham & cheese!

Take your favorite lunch meat and cheese, roll it up into... well, rolls... and bake them for about the same amount of time.

I also rolled up some shredded chicken, that was sauteed in barbecue sauce and sweet pickles.

Other Ideas:
  • butter the dough after rolling it out, and spread a cinnamon sugar mixture over the top. Roll up and slice, (before or after baking) for cinnamon buns!
  • Spread pasta or pizza sauce over the rolled dough, and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Roll it up, baste it with garlic butter, then bake!
  • Roll up some Sloppy Joe for a not so sloppy roll!
  • Make a hot tuna roll!
  • Roll up any of your favorite fruit pie mixture, and sprinkle with confection sugar after baking!
