Basic Biscuits
March 21, 2010

Got a craving for biscuits 30 minutes ago. Found this recipe. Here I sit now, in pools of melty butter. YUM! I did use lard instead of shortening. Barely handled the dough at all. IMPORTANT FOR NEW BISCUIT BAKERS: when using a glass or cookie cutter DON'T TWIST IT for any reason. This in effect "seals" the edges of the dough and will prevent from baking up sky high and delectable. I did make mine huge - recipe yielded 5 - and I couldn't be happier. Best biscuits I have ever made. Thank you!!!
