Cooking Goal...

We're getting down to the wire and my recipe ratio vs the days I have less is becoming more and more insurmountable as the days tick down. I will be quite disappointed in myself if I ultimately do not meet this goal - it will be the first goal since I have started making these challenges for myself, that I would have 'failed' - so while I am still pushing forward and will attempt to at least make a dent toward HALF of my goal, we'll see how it does.

Another recipe that I recently completed was for biscuits. We needed some bread to go with our pot roast, and so I went to the internet to find myself a simply recipe for something tasty to soak up some gravy. Yum. I came across this one and I doubled it so I'd have some extra to use for breakfast sandwhiches, and snacks. Yum carbs!

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 cup milk

Directions:
1.Preheat oven to 425'
2.In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
3.Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead 15 to 20 times. Pat or roll dough out to 1 inch thick. Cut biscuits with a large cutter or juice glass dipped in flour. Repeat until all dough is used. Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet.
4.Bake for 13 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to brown

These turned out soo yummy, I certainly will keep this recipe and use it again! The cooking continues and I keep pushing forward toward the goal of 150 NEW recipes in 2010! We'll see how I do!
