… are the best biscuits ever. With the holidays approaching, you might just need a biscuit recipe… and it would be handy if you had the very best recipe, wouldn’t it?! At the bottom, I will share. But first some other stuff.
I recently posted on Facebook my sincere appreciation for the logging truck drivers who frequent our road. They are so kind to us- making room on our crazy road to make sure we feel safe. That said, not only do logging trucks drive down the grade…
… but so do mobile homes…
(look close, that’s a triple wide on that trailer!) They did close the road for that little adventure… there wasn’t extra room for traffic!
And I took this picture of the kids…
And I just downloaded it off my camera… And I like it! It depicts several things:
1. their personalities
2. their relationships
3. the stages they’re each at right now.
OK. Recipe. Named “Linda’s Biscuits” after guess who?! Linda!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
1 pkg (2 1/4 tsps) active dry yeast with
1/2 cup warm water
Let yeast and water sit until foamy about 10 minutes then add:
2 cups buttermilk (I use sour’d milk because I never have buttermilk!)
In a separate bowl, mix together:
5-6 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
3 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
mix together. mix in:
3/4 cup shortening (I use butter and it works well)
Add yeast mixture to flour mixture. Roll out dough, cut out biscuits, bake 12-15 minutes.
