A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.

PostSubject: SOUTHERN BISCUITS   November 21st 2011, 9:34 pm


2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons shortening
1 cup buttermilk, chilled

1) In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
2) Using your fingertips, rub butter and shortening into dry ingredients until mixture looks
like crumbs. (The faster the better, you don't want the fats to melt.)
3) Make a well in the center and pour in the chilled buttermilk.
4) Stir just until the dough comes together. The dough will be very sticky.
5) Turn dough onto floured surface, dust top with flour and gently fold dough over on itself
5 or 6 times.
6) Press into a 1−inch thick round.
7) Cut out biscuits with a 2−inch cutter, being sure to push straight down through the
8 ) Place biscuits on baking sheet so that they just touch.
9) Reform scrap dough, working it as little as possible and continue cutting. (Biscuits from
the second pass will not be quite as light as those from the first, but hey, that's life.)
10) Bake until biscuits are tall and light gold on top, 15 to 20 minutes.

A hungry stomach seldoms scorns plain food.
