Random Recipes

Only two recipes..but they're def. random. Do not make together : )
For Christmas, I made an easy appetizer:
I took jalapenos, halved them and seeded them.
Then place cream cheese as filling.
Wrap each jalapeno half with half a piece of bacon.
Place on a jelly roll sheet or pyrex dish (as there will be juices that come out as they cook) and place in the oven at 350 until the bacon is cooked.
It may have been because there was so much else in the oven, but it took nearly an hour for mine to cook. Be warned also that these are very spicy! : )

On Sunday when we started cooking breakfast, I realized that I did not have enough bisquick to make biscuits, so I consulted my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook:

Baking Powder Biscuits
from the Betty Crocker Cookbook
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbs sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
1.Heat oven to 450
2.In medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening (using 2 table knives, pull through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in milk until dough leaves side of bowl (dough will be soft and sticky).
3. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with flour 2- to 2 1/4 inch round cutter (I used the top of a class that was about 2 inches). Place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 1-inch apart for crusty sides, touching for softer sides.
4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. I pulled out the biscuits when there was about 2 minutes left and put a little butter on the top of each biscuit and then placed them back in the oven so the butter could melt.
