Heart Shape Biscuits and a Vintage Cookbook

I love this cookbook, I picked it at an estate sale and was immediately drawn to it because my mom has the same cookbook. I can see her pulling it out and looking up a recipe. I remember using it to make homemade biscuits when I was younger.

So over the weekend I pulled it out to make homemade biscuits for my family, but with a twist, I used a HEART shape cookie cutter to make them extra SPECIAL! My daughter helped with with cookie cutter. 

I used the BISCUITS SUPREME recipe used, page 77:

2 c. sifted all-purpose flour

4 t. baking powder

1/2 t. salt

1/2 t. cream of tarter

2 t. sugar

1/2 c. shortening

2/3 c. milk

Sift flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tarter, sugar; cut in shortening, it will resemble course crumbs. Add milk; stir only until dough follows fork around bowl. Turn out on lightly floured surface; knead gently. Roll dough until 1/2 inch thick; cut biscuit with a biscuit cutter or COOKIE CUTTER. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet in very hot oven 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.

They are hootalious! I served with scrambled eggs and Fredericksburg, Texas Opa’s Country Sausage.Hoot-A-Loo, Rebecca
