Hamburger Mix Cheeseburger Cup Muffins

Here’s a recipe that uses the home-canned or frozen hamburger mix to make a delicious, kid-pleasing meal or a nice snack for a football party or the like.  Since I’m a make-it-yourself kind of gal, I am giving my favorite biscuit recipe for these; you can use canned biscuits the same way.
A couple of hints for success…keep your dough a little thinner on the bottom so it cooks through, and, for the same reason, be sure to heat your meat mixture in a saucepan or, covered, in the microwave so it starts cooking the biscuit dough from the inside too.

Cheeseburger Cup Muffins
6 Muffins
12 Muffins
½ pint
1 pint
Hamburger Mix, canned 
¼ cup
½ cup
Velveeta -- cubed

1 cup
2 cups
Flour, All-purpose -- 4 1/2 ounces
½ Tbsp.
1 Tbsp.
Baking Powder
½ tsp.
½ tsp.
2 Tbsp.
¼ cup
Lard -- or shortening
3 ounces
¾ cup

Preheat oven to 400°.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt together.  Cut in lard or shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Make a hollow in the flour-shortening mixture and stir in enough milk to make a soft dough that leaves the sides of the bowl but sticks to the mixing fork.  Let rest 5 minutes in the bowl.  Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead 10 times.  Roll out 1/2" thick; cut with a biscuit cutter to form 6 or 12 biscuits, pressing together scraps and recutting if necessary.
Heat hamburger mix; set aside.  Press each biscuit onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased muffin cup, leaving it thinner on the bottom. Spoon beef mixture into cups; top with cheese cubes.
Bake at 400° for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from pans to rack or serving plate.
