How to Make Potato Soup

When you are in the mood for a warm comfort food on a fall day soup is at the top of the list. This potato soup recipe is a perfect fit and a healthier choice since it replaces cream with fat free milk.

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is crumby. Add bacon bits and cheese, tossing to combine. Add milk and 1 tablespoon butter. Stir lightly until well mixed, being careful not to over mix.
Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface. Knead dough 4 or 5 times. With floured hands, pat out dough to approximately 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter without twisting. Place on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown. Brush hot biscuits with remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
