Basic Biscuits

In this video, you’ll see how to make flaky, fluffy homemade biscuits. All it takes are just a handful of ingredients: all-purpose flour, a little baking powder, some shortening, salt, and milk. So simple to make, they’re the perfect all-day biscuit: great at breakfast with eggs and sausage gravy or just topped with a little butter and honey; wonderful split for a sandwich; and, of course, a must-have at dinner time. Watch the video, then get lenihan5’s top-rated for Basic Biscuits. Best of all, they’re ready in about 30 minutes.

Hmm video won't play. I've never had a video not run on this old laptop. Just an exclamation mark in the center of where the video would be.

In Australia we call them scones! and old staple for us, yes you can use margerine, although butter tastes nicer, we also use lemonade with a little cream to give good fluffyness and no baking powder.
