Drop Biscuits

I love bread. Who doesn't, really? And I feel that any sort of pasta dish requires some nice warm bread or rolls to go along with it. I originally planned to just buy some frozen rolls to go along with tonight's dinner but started feeling ambitious and thought it would be better to try to make some from scratch. I wanted an easy and quick recipe, preferably one that didn't require yeast. I came across this recipe for Drop Biscuits on the Cooking Light website and it was perfect. These were extremely easy to make (baking them in muffin tins rather than on a sheet is great!) and the biscuits came out soft and dense. I added garlic powder to my dough before baking to give these a little kick, but I think I might leave that out next time, as they seem like they'd be delicious without. I made mine larger than recommended and wound up with 8 biscuits.

Drop Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chilled butter or stick margerine, cut into small pieces
1 cup fat-free milk
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 450ยบ.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk; stir just until moist.
Spoon the batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until golden. Remove biscuits from pan immediately, and place on a wire rack.
1 dozen (serving size: 1 biscuit)

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
