1,23,4 Biscuits or also know as Trish's Biscuits

1,2,3,4 Biscuits (Original Recipe from Montreal Star, June 1957)

Ingredients:

1 tsp salt
2 cups Five Roses flour
3 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup hard margarine (1 square of Imperial or Parkay)
3/4 cup soured milk or buttermilk


Method: Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet

1. To sour milk, put 3 tsp vinegar or lemon juice into a 3/4 cup measuring cup and add milk to fill. Leave stand until needed.
2. In a large bowl, sift all dry ingredients together.
3. With a pasty blender or two knives cut the margarine into the flour mixture, until it looks like coarse cornmeal. (This step is very important....if the margarine pieces are too big, the biscuits will not rise evenloy)>
4. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the soured milk. Stir together with a knife until mixture starts to clump, then push into a ball with your hands.
5. Turn out onto floured counter and knead together into a smooth ball.
6. Flatten to one inch thick square and cut into 16 biscuits, or flatten to one inch thick circle and cut into 12 triangular wedges.
7. Bake on highest shleft for 6 minutes, then turn tray around and bake for another 6 minutes. Check the biscuits. They should be lightly browned and well risen. If necessary, bake for one or two more minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy!!
