Jellied Biscuits

  These cute Jellied Biscuits are what we had with our breakfast this morning. We all loved them! They would make the perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch. We spread a little butter on the tops and they were perfect. Tender in the center with a slight outer crunch. The jelly gives them the perfect hint of sweetness. Yumm! The recipe is out of my cookbook Taste of Home 30-Minute Cookbook. If you don’t have any Taste of home cookbooks I would go get some. I have gotten so many great recipes out of their books. They are all easy, down home recipes. The ingredients are:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup jelly
  1. In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir just until moistened.
  2. Drop by rounded Tablespoons onto a greased baking sheet. Make an indention in center of each biscuit; fill each with about 1 teaspoon jelly.
  3. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until biscuits are lightly browned.

Yield: about 1 dozen
