Here is a wonderful biscuit recipe for Lughnassadh. Whenever I think of this festival I think of breads and cakes and it is the perfect festival for baking what you've harvested.
**You can make the biscuits as is or you can add your favorite cheese to the dough before adding the milk. Cheddar works wonderfully.**
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
3 cups of flour
4 tsp. of baking powder
1 Tbsp. of sugar
1 tsp. of salt
3/4 cup butter
1 cup milk
1- Mix together in large bowl: flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
2- Cut butter into flour mixture using a fork until the mix is a bit lumpy.
3- Add milk and mix until dough-y.
4- Turn out onto a floured surface and knead, adding a little flour as you go until the dough has an elastic consistency.
5- Pat down or roll out the dough to a 3/4 inch thickness.
6- Cut into biscuits using a 2 inch biscuit cutter. I use a glass with a 2 inch diameter.
7- Bake on an un-greased pan for 10-12 minutes.
8- Serve warm.
9- Makes 15-17 biscuits.
