From: nell@... (Paula Gaynell Warnes) Date: Tue, 26 Oct 1993 22:13:28 GMT Here's a basic biscuit receipe. Sift 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of baking powder. Cut in ¼ cup of shortning (or butter).
Mix in the buttermilk until the consistency is right. (less than a ¼ cup usually) The dough should hold it's form, but not be sticky. If it is sticky add more flour. Roll out and cut with a biscuit cutter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. The buscuits should touch if you want tall fluffy ones or space evenly for flat biscuits. Bake at 375 for about 10-20 min.
