  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir with fork until soft dough forms.
  • Place on lightly floured surface; knead 20 times or until smooth. Pat or roll lightly until dough is 1/2-inch thick. Cut with floured 2-inch cookie cutter to make 16 biscuits, rerolling dough scraps as necessary. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Great Substitute

Substitute shortening or butter for the margarine.

    Oh my, they were awful. I followed the directions exactly. They never rose, stayed flat as pancakes, didn't brown. They were inedible.

    Gave them to my Dogs and they didnt even eat them. My one dog tried and ab*****hoked on it, crusty on bottom and flat. Worst recipe, either that or correct the directions to make them right

    Followed directions exactly NO Taste and flat. Still looked like uncooked dough, and when following the directions I could NOT knead it because it was too liquidy, so dont know how everyone else said they came out great?
