Biscuits

Sometimes a simple biscuit is just what you need with dinner. This is a basic recipe, to which you could add other herbs and spices, a little cheese or whatever strikes you. It can be made as either drop biscuits or rolled and cut. If you don't have a biscuit cutter, you can use a glass or just cut it into squares with a knife.

2 c Flour
4 t Sodium Free Baking Powder
2 t Sugar
1/2 t Cream Of Tartar
1/2 c Unsalted Margarine
2/3 c Skim Milk

Cut out with 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes or til golden brown.
