Welcome to our blog.  I’m not sure how the blog will turn out as I am trying something new.  However, I am sure the Sugar Biscuits will be delightful.

1 Egg Man is a regular on our Native American Forum Thread.  Here is an example of his art.  Can you imagine anyone getting this type of detail on an egg shell?  It is amazing!  If you would like to view more of his beautiful work, go to http://www.1eggman.etsy.com  You will be oooing and ahhhhing for sure!

I can’t wait to see how this blog turns out nor can I wait to try this luscious sounding biscuit recipe.

Sugar Biscuit Recipe From Mrs. 1Eggman

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and I put the rack in the lowest position.

2 cups flour plus about 1/4 cup for working out the dough
1 tsp of salt
1 tbl spoon of baking powder
3/4 cup powered sugar
1 stick cold butter, very cold is best
3/4 cup of half-and-half

Combine the dry ingredients and cut in the butter. Then stir in the half-and-half until the doung begins to pull away from the side. Now just empty the dough onto a floured board, or wherever you work your dough and the dough will be moist, and gently turn it until it is covered with the flour. You want to gently knead the dough into the flour but don’t ove-knead. About 10 turns should do the trick.

Now just pat the dough to about a one inch slab and cut into rounds using a sharp biscuit cutter. I like a 2 to 3 inch biscuit for these. You can rework the leftover pieces but do not knead them too much.

You want to use an insulated cookie sheet for baking, or stack several sheets together, and place the dough on the sheet about 1’2 inch apart. Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes. You can check to see if they are done by gently lifing the top layer of a biscuit near the center. It should look dry inside and the edges should be a nice golden brown.
Since the recipe has no eggs, I assume he tucks those away to carve at a future date. 
Thanks 1 Egg Man and Mrs. 1 Egg Man
