:: From Our Kitchen ::

Moist, flaky topped biscuits are a favorite around our house! Here's our version of:

Buttermilk Biscuits

4 c. all purpose flour
2 T. baking powder
3 T. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
5 T. shortening
5 T. butter
2 c. buttermilk

Make buttermilk--put 1/4 c. vinegar in a measuring cup, then fill it with milk to the 2 cup line. Next, mix dry ingredients. Beat in shortening and butter with pastry blender. If the buttermilk has been made for at least 5 minutes, stir it then add to other ingredients. Mix ingredients well, then turn onto a floured surface. Roll to desired thickness--we like about 3/4" thickness, but to each his own. [smile] Bake at 425' for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes approximately two dozen biscuits. These are absolutely delicious--especially with whole wheat flour, which also adds to their nutritiousness!

Cane syrup only multiplies the deliciousness...sorry to all you Northerners who haven't had the privilege of enjoying this natural goodness!
