Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut the butter in, but not too thoroughly - there should be plenty of bits of butter about the size of a pea. Mix the beaten egg and milk and add to the dry ingredients. Mix it in, but not too thoroughly - it should still be very shaggy, with most of the flour moistened. Kneading it will finish the mixing.
Dust your kneading surface with flour and dump all the dough out. Quickly push and pat together, and knead lightly 10 to 12 times. Pat into a rectangle about 3/4 of an inch thick. You can cut it into the traditional rounds, but I cut it into squares. This way, there is no need to gather up the extra dough and pat it out again - the second round of biscuits done this way are never quite as light and tender.
Bake in a preheated, 475 degree F oven for 10 - 12 minutes. If not quite done, turn the oven off and leave in for a minute or two longer with the door closed.
Serve and wait for compliments.

Cook hot dogs and put on a bun. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Put in oven for 5 minutes to melt cheese. Then add some bacon, tomatoes and onions. Makes a boring meal a tastier one. It's great for summer meals, just cook some fries to go with them.

Using a large sharp knife, cut spaghetti squash in half and spoon out the seeds. If desired, rub it with a little olive oil and sprinkle salt and garlic powder on squash. Lay cut side down in baking dish and bake for about 45 minutes at 375 degrees F. until it is tender. When it is cool enough to handle, rake the insides out with a fork. It comes out looking like spaghetti pasta.
Sauce: Brown 1 pound of lean hamburger and drain. In large saucepan, prepare Spaghetti Sauce mix as directed on package and then add the hamburger. Cover and simmer about 15 minutes stirring often.
Place squash on plate, pour sauce over it and serve.
You can search how to prepare spaghetti squash on the Internet and use your favorite Spaghetti Sauce. I freeze the leftover sauce but any left over Spaghetti Squash can be refrigerated and eaten 4-5 days later. I had a serving for lunch and the taste was the same as when it was fresh. I have not tried freezing it.

Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil. Combine the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate and the shortening in a large microwave-safe bowl, and microwave until the chocolate is melted, stirring after every 20-30 seconds. When chocolate gets overheated, it thickens and becomes unworkable, so watch your chocolate carefully! Take it out of the microwave when there are still unmelted chips remaining, and stir until the final chips melt.
If dipping pretzel rods, hold a rod by one end and dip it in the chocolate, leaving an inch or two uncovered. If you are dipping pretzel twists, drop the whole pretzel in the chocolate and submerge it slightly. Use a fork to pull the pretzel out of the chocolate.
Shake the chocolate-dipped pretzels several times to remove excess chocolate, and place it on the prepared baking sheet. If you are using sprinkles or small candies, sprinkle them on when the chocolate is still wet. Repeat with remaining chocolate and pretzels. Place the pretzels in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set the chocolate.
If desired, melt the white chocolate and drizzle it over the pretzels for a decorative look. Briefly return the candy to the refrigerator to set the white chocolate before serving
