OLD TIME BUTTERSCOTCH BISCUITS

So I took this recipe from an old yellowed Newspaper Clipping that was saved from 1950. It was best recipes from House Hold Almanac. This recipe stood out to me.. it is a simple biscuit recipe, that you fix somewhat like you would a cinnamon roll only this is of course biscuit dough instead of bread dough. It is fast, easy and the kids gave it an A+ ..

The ONLY problem with this recipe is it is kinda hard getting the biscuits out of the muffin tin looking perfect.. but my boys didn’t mind if they were pretty.. they just go for taste.  PS. These are great with coffee.

1 stick butter melted

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (Hudson Creme)

3 3/4 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup granulated white sugar

5 Tbsp shortening

about 1/2 cup milk

1 egg beaten

2 tbsp melted butter

1/2 cup brown sugar packed

Roll up biscuit dough like a jelly roll from the 13″ side.

Cut evenly into 3/4″ slices. Place flat in prepared muffin pans.

Bake in hot oven 17 minutes or so.

Remove at once, carefully as they will break apart easily while hot and soft but if you let sugars harden it is also hard to get out of pan.. ..
