Spicy Baked Biscuits for Refreshment


1 cup all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
1/8 cup shortening
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
½ cup milk, fat free
½ teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1 teaspoon sugar

Spiced Fan Biscuits Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degree Fahrenheit. Grease 6 two inch muffin cups lightly and leave aside.
  2. Take a large bowl and stir all purpose flour with baking flour, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in the shortening using a pastry blender and blend until the whole mixture resembles like coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of this crumb and pour milk there. Stir only till the dough clings together.
  3. Take a flat rolling board and lightly flour it or lightly flour a flat surface and knead the dough by light folding and gentle pressing for up to 10-12 strokes. As the dough is nearly smooth stop kneading and divide the dough in two equal halves. Roll one part in a rectangular shape, roughly 10-8 inches in size. Take a small bowl to combine sugar and cinnamon. Spread half of the sugar cinnamon mixture on the rolled rectangular part. Cut the rectangle in to five 10×2 inch strips. Pile these strips on top of each other and cut into six 2 inch stacks. Cut aside down and place each stack in the greased muffin cups. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining dough and sugar.
  4. After done, place the muffin cups in the preheated oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes. As they turn golden brown, remove from the oven and serve warm. This recipe serves six.
  5. Kneading the dough is a very important stage along with blending the shortening in the flour. Follow the procedure properly to get a perfect taste and texture for the biscuits.
