- prep 15 min cook 10 min
- serves 12-14
- 12⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄3 cup cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon dried minced onion or minced onion
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- Dash ground red pepper (cayenne)
- 1⁄3 cup shortening, butter, or margarine
- 1⁄2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup low-fat (1% milkfat) milk
How to make it 25 minutes
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, onion, cream of tartar, salt, and red pepper. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add sour cream and milk all at once and stir just until a soft dough forms.
Knead on a lightly floured surface for 30 seconds, then pat or roll until 3⁄4 inch thick. Using a 21⁄2-inch biscuit cutter, cut into 12 to 14 biscuits, rerolling and cutting the scraps. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Brush the tops with a little additional milk if you like. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.

I think my pilot was a little inexperienced. We were sitting on the runway, and he said, “OK, folks, we’re gonna be taking off in a just few—whoa! Here we go.”
