These light and fluffy biscuts served with butter, honey or your favorite jelly will keep them coming back for more.


2 cups All purpose flour

4 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
1 dash Mace
1/2 cup Shortening
2/3 cup Milk
1 each Egg

Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Preheat a #16 Dutch Oven for a hot oven, 450 to 500 degrees. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a bowl, whisk milk and egg. Stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Drop by heaping spoonfuls 2 in. apart into the dutch oven. Place lid on the oven and place over just a few coals, too many and the biscuts will burn. Cover the lid evenly and completely with coals. Bake hot for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
