Tips

  • Use butter or margarine in place of shortening.
  • Don't have a round cookie cutter in your kitchen? Use the open mouth of a glass, cup or jar of jam.
  • If you use whole wheat flour, be aware that the biscuits will come out a little thicker. A good idea is to use half and half of each flour.
  • This is a good cooking experience to introduce yourself to young people.

Notices

  • Use oven mitts or pan supports to remove the pan from the oven.
  • Do not leave inexperienced children unattended while cooking or handling hot or sharp utensils.
