Guiness Beer Biscuits

Cooking Club back in August did a Beer-Themed Night. It was amazing. Everyone had to cook with beer as one of their ingredients. Just so you know, everything tastes better when made with beer. It's so flavorful and delicious. Instead of steaming veggies in water, do it with beer instead. So good! I made this insanely delicious wasabi beer chili (stay tuned for that recipe) and since we were in need of a starch, I made these beer biscuits. Simple to make, only a few ingredients, but worth all of them.

Ingredients (this makes 12 muffins):

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (I used whole wheat)
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 bottle of beer (I used Guinness!)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Mix flour, baking powder, & salt.
Cut in shortening until the dough has a cornmeal consistency.
Stir in beer.
Kneed the dough lightly.
Break off even pieces and place into greased muffin tins.
Bake about 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve with some delicious butter!
