Sky High Biscuits




You can make these and shape them ahead of time, then bake and serve hot from the oven.

Oven at 450 degrees

Bake 12-15 minutes


  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour (or 2 cups Regular Flour/1 cup Whole Wheat Flour)
  • 4 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 3/4 tsp. Cream of Tartar
  • 3/4 cup Butter or Margarine
  • 1 Egg; beaten
  • 1 cup Milk (Low or Non-fat are ok)


1. In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar.


2. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.

A food processor works great for this.


3. Add egg and milk, stirring quickly and briefly. Knead lightly on floured board.


4. Roll or pat gently to 1-inch thickness. Cut 1-2 inch biscuits. Place in a greased cast iron skillet or in a square pan.

For crusty biscuits, separate on a cookie sheet.
