Party Breads

BISCUITS

The very nicest compliment a hostess can pay her guests!

Heat oven to 450° (hot). Add 2/3 cup milk to 2 cups Bisquick; stir with fork. Beat 15 strokes. It will be stiff, but sticky.

ROLLED: Roll dough around on cloth-covered board lightly dusted with Bisquick. Knead gently 10 times to smooth up. Roll 1/2″ thick, biscuits double in baking. Dip cutter in Bisquick; cut. Bake on ungreased baking sheet 10 to 15 min.; close together for soft sides, 1″ apart for crusty sides. Makes twelve 2″ biscuits.

DROP: Drop dough with spoon on greased baking sheet. Bake as above.

RICHER BISCUITS: Mix 1/4 cup soft butter or shortening, or 3 tbsp. salad oil into Bisquick before mixing in milk.

HOW CAN BISQUICK DO SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS SO WELL?

Is it magic, or what?

The ingredients in the Bisquick box are similar to those you would sift and mix yourself, to begin baking almost anything.

Spun together in a way that simply can’t be managed at home, these ingredients perform almost magically in several different (delicious) directions!

ONION-CHEESE SUPPER BREAD

The perfect party partner for meats. Try it next time instead of serving potatoes.

1 tbsp. shortening

Heat oven to 400° (mod. hot). Sauté onion in shortening until golden. Mix egg, milk; blend in Bisquick. Add onion, half of cheese. Spread dough in greased 8×1 1/2″ round glass baking dish. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese, poppy seeds. Sprinkle melted butter over all. Bake 20 to 25 min. Serve hot with butter. 6 to 8 servings.

CINNAMON THINS

Sometimes we call them Flying Saucers, they’re so round and thin and they disappear so fast.

Heat oven to 450° (hot). Make Fruit Shortcake dough (see Bisquick pkg.). Form into forty 1″ balls. Coat balls in 1 1/3 cups sugar, 3 tsp. cinnamon spread thickly on waxed paper. Roll each in oval shape on paper; turning and rolling several times until very thin. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. finely chopped nuts and roll lightly. Place on well greased baking sheet.
