Ingredients
  • 2   cups 
    all-purpose flour
  • 4   teaspoons 
    baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    cream of tartar
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/4  cup 
    shortening
  • 3/4  cup 
    fat-free milk
  •  
    Sugar and cinnamon (optional)
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Stir together flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center; add milk. Stir just until dough clings together.
2.
Knead dough gently for 10 to 12 strokes on a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Roll one portion into a 12x10-inch rectangle. If desired, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over rectangle. Cut rectangle into five 12x2-inch strips. Stack the strips one on top of the other. Cut into six 2-inch-square stacks. Place stacks, edge-side down, in greased muffin cups. Repeat with remaining dough.
3.
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. Makes 12 biscuits.
