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 min.

3 cups all-purpose flour (or 2 cups reg. 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 o.k.)

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.
Makes about 20
