I always just make the old baking powder type biscuits, that are found in most cook books, I have found they are easy and always turn out good. If you don't have the recipe or no one else responds I'll look through my recipes, as I know I have a couple of other different ones.

Angel Biscuits

1 cup buttermilk
4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 pkg dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
5 T shortening
2 T sugar
2 T butter or margarine (melted)

Heat buttermilk in a small pan until bubbles form around edge, careful not to overheat as buttermilk will curdle. Cool to lukewarm. While milk is cooling, sprinkle yeast over warm water in a small bowl. Add sugar to yeast mixture. Stir in lukewarm buttermilk. Into a large bowl sift flour with baking powder and salt. Cut shortening into flour mix, until like coarse cornmeal. Make a well in the flour mix & pour in buttermilk/yeast mixture all at once. Stir with wooden spoon to mix well. Dough will be stiff. Knead as for bread until smooth. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with floured 2" cutter (or a glass will work). Place 1" apart on greased cookie sheet. Cover with towel & let rise in warm place until double. Brush tops with butter. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

This is the recipe I use for Biscuits, its easy and always turns out good. The recipe can be doubled to make more, and stored in a plastic bag they keep well.


2 cups flour
3 T baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
2-4 T shortening

Sift dry ingredients, cut in shortening and add milk..Then roll out and cut out your biscuits, place on ungreased baking sheet and bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes. Makes about 8 regular sized biscuits.

Okay here are the biscuit recipes I use:

Betty Crocker's
1/4 c. shortening
2 c. flour
1 T. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 c. milk

Heat oven to 450 F. Cut shortening into flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; until fine crumbs form. Stir in just enough milk so dough leaves side of bowl and rounds up into a ball. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Mom's Red Lobster Biscuits

2 c. Bisquick
1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. minced onion
Stir in:
2/3 c. milk
Stir 30 seconds more. Drop batter on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 400 F 10-12 minutes. Drizzle with seasoned butter (1/4 c. butter, melted and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder). Serve warm.

Well the Mom's Red Lobster Biscuits sound very interesting, I'll keep this recipe to try sometime. And now that the weather is getting colder, I will probable turn the oven on and make a few things, [scaredy] since I'll probable be board..sigh I would take digging in the dirt before cooking and baking, But since I won't be able to dig in the dirt, I guess baking, eating and puttin on that winter fat will have to do.
