Tea Biscuits

Low in cholesterol and sugar.
These biscuits are a favorite of my family.
My mother made these often..
Great for a snack with butter...
They disappear fast when my grandkids are around.


2 cups Flours
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter
1 cup milk

Preheat Oven to 450 degrees

Mix together flour, baking powder and salt.

Cut in butter until mixture is a coarse crumb texture.

Add milk, stirring with a fork to make a soft dough.
 Turn dough onto lightly floured board and knead lightly for a few minutes

Roll or pat out to desired thickness - about 1/2 inch

Cut dough with a 2-inch floured biscuit cutter.
(I use my favourite glass)

Place on ungreased baking sheet.
Brush tops with milk to make a brown crust.

Bake in hot oven 450 degrees 12-15 minutes

Perfect Tea Biscuits should be golden brown with a fairly smooth, level top.
                                    They  should be slightly moist, tender, light and flaky.

This recipe I took from an old  Five Roses Cookbook.
Instead of shortening, I use butter.
