My father was a man that could take an unstocked kitchen and make a gourmet meal. I watched him make these biscuits when we were out of milk. Just amazing!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Stir the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar together in a bowl, and cut in the shortening with a pastry cutter until the mixture looks like crumbs. Mix in the vegetable juice cocktail just until moist, and turn out onto a well-floured work surface. Gently knead several times just until dough holds together, roll out to 1/2-inch thick, and cut into rounds with a biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until risen and lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes.

These are "Savory" little biscuits nice hint of tomato flavor! These are easy to put together and a great base for add-in's. I cut the recipe in half and used 1/4 tsp. each of salt and baking soda. I added 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder, 1 tsp. of Italian seasoning, and 2 Tbsp. of Parmesan cheese to give it a little pizzaz. Next time I might even add in some chopped sun-dried tomatoes. I did end up adding a little more tomato juice to the dough. I rolled these out on a lightly floured surface and cut it with a mini- biscuit cutter. I baked these on parchment paper and they baked up beautifully in ten minutes. I topped them with melted butter - YUM!

I really enjoyed these. They had a nice tomato flavor. I used spicy vegetable juice cocktail so it had a little bit of a kick to it, Will make them again
