This is a great recipe to make with the kids!

Shortening 8 oz pizza sauce
All-purpose flour 1-2 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella, cheddar, or other favorite cheeses)
1 package refrigerated biscuits Toppings: any combination of favorite pizza toppings (e.g. sliced pepperoni, chopped green peppers, onions, hamburger, Italian sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes)
  1. Heat oven to 425. Grease baking sheets with shortening.
  2. Sprinkle cutting board with flour.  Pull biscuits apart and use rolling-pin to flatten biscuits until about 4 inches across. Place on baking sheet.
  3. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons pizza sauce onto each biscuit. Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of cheese. Let everyone top with favorite toppings.
  4. Bake until crust is brown, about 10-15 minutes.

Get creative!  Try BBQ sauce instead of pizza sauce with chicken, red onions, a slice of provolone and  jalapeños.  Alfredo sauce, shrimp, mozzarella, onions and chopped broccoli is very good, too.  Ketchup, mustard, american cheese, pickle relish, onions and hot dogs for the hot dog lover.  You can use Grands biscuits for thicker crust, or larger crust if you flatten it out more.  Bake for 15-20 minutes if you use Grands.

Happy National Angel Food Cake Day!

Angel Food Cake, also called Angel Cake, is a type of sponge cake that first became popular in the U.S. in the late 19th century, named because of its airy lightness that was said to be the “food of the angels.”

Angel Food Cake is one of my favorite snacks to have with tea.  It tastes good with almost any tea and fruit or spice can be added make it a little different every time.

I think some Angel Food Cake sounds pretty good today.  How about you?
