day 21

21. a recipe

from jan karons mitford cookbook & kitchen reader; one of 6 biscuit recipes that can be found there. i made them last night and they are good, but they are meant to be thin and i just prefer a taller, fluffier biscuit.

mamas biscuits

2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3-5 tablespoons shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk

put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands until it becomes a dough. allow to rise for a few minutes. roll out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out with a drinking glass or biscuit cutter. place on greased and lightly floured baking sheet. bake at 375 for 20 min.

i usually like honey on my biscuits, but the author said they are particularly good with jelly. she was right. maybe its the thinness, but i tried one with honey and preferred the jelly.
