Sausage and Cheese Appetizer Biscuits


Non-stick cooking spray

1/2 pound bulk pork sausage

2 cups Martha White Self-Rising Flour

1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

1/4 cup all-vegetable shortening

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons butter, melted


Preheat oven to 450º F. Spray baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Cook sausage in a large skillet until brown and crumbled. Remove from skillet; drain.

Combine flour and ground red pepper in a large bowl; mix well. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sausage and cheese. Add milk; stir with a fork until a moist dough forms.

Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush hot biscuits with melted butter.
