shaker biscuits

Reblogged from The Latest Good Recipe Blog.

Put in a big bowl:
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tsp sugar
1 rounded tsp salt

Blend in:
4 tablespoons of butter or lard, Dad uses 4 tbsp lard and 1 tbsp butter
Enough milk to make a biscuit dough, about ¾ – 1 cup
(If you use buttermilk, you leave out ½ tsp baking powder and put in ½ tsp baking soda instead)
Various seeds

The thing that makes these terrific is putting egg yolk and cream or butter on top to hold on seeds of all sorts – poppy, sesame, or plain, but even the plain ones need to be glazed in melted butter. It is what makes the top tasty.

Bake at 425 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.
