How to Poach Eggs in a Strainer


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. In a bowl, sift the flour with the baking powder, sugar and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the milk until just moistened.

  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead twice. Roll out the dough 1/3 inch thick. Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, stamp out biscuits as close together as possible; transfer to a baking sheet. Reroll the scraps and stamp out the remaining biscuits. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until lightly golden. Serve immediately.
