Shortcake Biscuits

We went strawberry picking a couple weeks ago and then decided to make strawberry shortcake. I needed to find a recipe and a quick one at that, I also didn't want to have to roll them out and cut them. This recipe was simple and quick!

2 cups flour(I used half whole wheat/ap)
2 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk
1 egg

Mix together dry ingredients and cut in shortening using a pastry blender or fork until dough resembles coarse crumbles. In another bowl, whisk together milk and egg and blend into crumbles just until moistened. Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake at 450 degreese for 10-12 mins or until golden brown.

**These worked perfectly for strawberry shortcake! Mine did not take 10 mins to cook, so just keep an eye on them.
