On this occasion, we decided we wanted biscuits so I pulled out my favorite cookbook, Cookin' with the Chicks, and found Jenny's recipe for Baking Powder Biscuits.
After adding all the dry ingredients to the bowl, we added the shortening and Stephen got busy "cutting it in."
After the cutting in, and adding the rest of the ingredients, Stephen gently kneaded the dough.
Flattened it to about 1/2 inch and cut out the biscuits. He used an alfredo sauce jar to cut them out so they were kind of small!
