Home Made Biscuits Recipe

Try this delicious home made biscuits recipe. It is all too true that nothing says loving like a home-cooked meal.

When I think of my great-grandmother, I often recall the many times she made homemade biscuits for us. They weren't the kind in the frozen section of the local grocery store, nor were they the kind you pop out of a can and stick in the oven. They were the kind made at home with several ingredients and lots of love.

Below is my great-grandmother's recipe for Old Time Homemade Biscuits.

You will need:

1 Cup Flour: Any kind, as long as it is self-rising.

1/2 Cup Buttermilk: You do not have to use buttermilk, and may substitute regular milk.

Dash of Salt

Pinch of Baking Soda

Water: To consistancy.

First, mix all dry ingredients together. Then, add milk and stir until well mixed. Add water to consistancy. (Your mix should not be too thick or biscuits will not rise, nor should they be too thin or they will not cook!)

Pour small amount of flour on clean countertop and pour biscuit dough onto it. Cover completely with dry flour until there are no wet spots remaining. Flatten biscuit dough until no thicker than one inch. Cut out biscuits with biscuit cutter. (I use the edge of a glass! It works just the same!) Place biscuits on ungreased cooking sheet. Place a small drop of butter on top of each biscuit. (You may use cooking oil, but butter tastes better.)

Cook at 350 degrees for twenty minutes or until golden brown.

This recipe has been passed down through the generations in my family and I hope that your family will love it too.

Results may vary! I am not a natural-born cook, so it took me several attempts to perfect this 'masterpiece'! Don't be disappointed if your batch isn't perfect the first time around!!
