Cooking with the Pillsbury Doughboy

{Or more accurately:  Cooking with Earl}

I am joining Jo and Lynn for the Celebrity Cook Along, the Pillsbury Doughboy!

I am teaching Shelley (my thirteen year old daughter) how to cook, so I let Shelley pick the recipe.




Baking Powder Biscuits 


Prep time: 15 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Yield: 14 Biscuits



Ingredients:

2 cups Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
3/4 to 1 cup milk

Preparation Directions:

1. HEAT oven to 450°F. COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl; mix well. With pastry blender or fork, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stirring with fork, add enough milk until mixture leaves sides of bowl and forms a soft, moist dough.
2. TOSS dough lightly on floured surface until no longer sticky. Roll or press dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with floured 2-inch round cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
3. BAKE 8 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Serve warm.

Please join Lynn and Earl @ Happier Than a Pig In Mud for this fun linky party.  Jo @ Lazyon Loblolly is hosting a giveaway, too.  Jo will be giving away a Pillsbury Cookbook and the Pillsbury Doughboy!!!  :D

We are also having thinly sliced beef tenderloin with horseradish sauce served on the biscuits with a pear, arugula, and gorgonzola salad.

What are you cooking tonight for supper?

Blessings!

  7. I haven't cooked with Crisco for many years, but nothing tastes as good as when you do! I taught my daughter to cook from the time she was 2. Now, at 26, she is one of the only ones in her group of friends that cooks!

    Dinner tonight? Cracker Barrel!

  8. Oh SO YUMMY! I made pot roast with veggies for dinner tonight. It was yummy and easy. Hubby likes this even in the heat of summer! Have fun with your daughter - it's the little things that count. And, in the end, you will find out they are really the big things!

  17. for new cooks out there, when you cut your biscuits with a round biscuit cutter do not twist the cutter. Just press down and lift biscuit to cookie sheet. It will help with the rise of the biscuit.
