Biscuit Spirals
2 C. All Purpose Flour
2 TBSP Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Salt
½ C. Butter (shortening)
1 Beaten Egg
½ C. Milk
1 TBSP Butter, Melted
3 TBSP Brown or Granulated Sugar (Or Cinnamon Sugar)

Glaze (Optional)
1 C. Sifted Powdered Sugar
4-5 tsp Milk

450 Degrees
10 Minutes

In a mixing bowl stir together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in ½ cup shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make well in center. Combine egg and milk, add all at once to dry mixture. Stir until dough clings together. Knead gently on lightly floured surface for 12-15 strokes. Roll dough into 15x8 inch rectangle.

Brush the melted butter over the surface of the dough. Then sprinkle your choice of brown sugar, granulated sugar, or cinnamon sugar over the butter. Fold the dough in half to make a 15x4 rectangle. Cut into 15-16, 1 inch strips. Hold the strip at both ends and twist in opposite directions twice, forming a spiral. Place on lightly greased baking sheet, pressing both ends down. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. If desired, combine powdered sugar to 4-5 teaspoons milk, until it reaches to a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm biscuits. Makes 15-16 spirals.
