For this Post, Chris is submitted a really yummy Biscuit Recipe.
She wrote the recipe out for you, but think's it much easier to show you how to do it!
Here she is: Chris Burkett, from Cooking With Kick...

Biscuit Recipe

2 cups self-rising flour
1 stick butter
1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
a little more than 3/4 cups of milk, but not quite 1 cup
3 tablespoons of butter

Preheat oven to 450
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a cake pan in the oven while it is preheating
In a bowl cut butter into flour using a pastry cutter or by criss-crossing knives. Stir in sugar and then milk until dough pulls away from bowl. Place dough on a floured surface and knead about 5 times. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out biscuits using a glass or a biscuit cutter. Slide each biscuit around in the melted butter and then turn over and place in pan. Biscuits should touch. Bake for about 10 minutes. 

They look fabulous don't they???
Bet they'd be great in a shortcake like the one below!!!
Enjoy all!!!

Be on the lookout for the 4th of July BBQ posts coming up at the end of the week...
