One year I was making biscuits during the winter and thought it would be fun to use a snowflake cookie cutter. They turned out super cute and were a huge hit! I use this biscuit recipe all the time, but the only difference between these and regular biscuits is the shape.
In case you’re wondering, the photo is from another time when I made a mass amount of these biscuits, but this recipe is for 2-3 people.
This recipe makes 8-10 snowflake biscuits.
2 cups white flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk or buttermilk
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, and cream of tarter.
3. Using a fork, cut in the shortening until the mixture has coarse ‘crumbs’.
4. Make a well in the center of the ingredients, stir in the milk.
5. Lightly flour a surface. Dump the dough onto it and knead the dough by folding and pressing the dough 10 or 12 times until it’s smooth.
6. Roll the dough out to ½ inch thick.
7. Dip a snowflake cookie cutter in flour and start cutting out biscuits. Place in a greased glass baking dish.
8. Bake the biscuits for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.
9. Remove biscuits from pan and serve hot with butter.
