It's that time again....
baking season! To start things off and to test a potential Thanksgiving recipe, I've done a twist on my grandmother's biscuit recipe... This is super easy for even novice cooks!
2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
3/4 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil 2/3 cup buttermilk (or regular milk)
Preheat oven to 450. Oil a 9 inch cake or pie tin very well.
Sift dry ingredients in bowl. Add wet ingredients and mix well with fork until blended. Knead gently in bowl 10 times. Pinch off large golf ball sized pieces and pat down just a bit.. Make sure top and bottom get some oil from the pan. Place biscuits touching in the pan. Bake for about 14 minutes. Makes about 10.
