TABASCO CHEESE BISCUITS

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
6 tbsp shortening
1 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir in the cheese.  Using two knives or a pastry cutter, cut in the shortening.

Stir the sauce into the milk; add to the flour mixture, blending lightly but quickly. If doesn't isn't moist enough to stick together add a few drops of milk.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead 6 or 7 times. Using a rolling pin, roll out to a thickness of 1/2-inch. Cut with a biscuit cutter or a 2-inch glass than has been dipped in flour. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake biscuits at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes until lightly browned.
