Not to long ago a blog reader asked for my biscuit recipe. I often make these.
The biscuits aren’t a eye catching food but they are tasty. They are in my favorite beat up bowl…It’s a piece of enamelware.
Yep…you guessed it. The recipe came from my big old Betty Crocker cookbook.
Growing up, I NEVER had biscuits. It was a food that Hubby’s mom often made. She made bread from scratch and Hubby said on days they used more bread than she expected, she’d make these.
We have grown to have these with biscuits and gravy. It can be pork sausage gravy or it can be chicken gravy. Either are favorites around here.
When Karl was home this week I tried to make as many of his favorite things to eat as I could. I’ve actually been doing LOTS of cooking. It feels kind of good to pull out our favorites.
Here’s the recipe.
Some notes about the recipe.
I always use Crisco or a generic brand of it. Read the directions carefully as you really do need to to use a pastry blender like when making pie crust
Mine seem to go better if they are in the oven for 12 minutes…and yes at 450 degrees. I use a larger cutter at 3″….
The biscuits aren’t the best the next day so only make as many as you’ll need for one meal.
Stay tuned. Tonight I’m going to give you the recipe for the chicken gravy that had everyone wishing there was more.
