Diane's StoryI used to make these biscuits a lot when my kids were young. They're easy, and oh so good! But with the arrival of Grands Frozen Biscuits, I have to admit that i don't make them much anymore. But ever so often, when I want to feel really warm and fuzzy, I get the old recipe out once again and am never disappointed. They are still "Oh so good!"
all purpose flour
1Before you even start this recipe, put two TBS warm water in a small bowl and pour yeast over it. Let it stand until it dissolves and "grows." See picture!
2Mix all dry ingredients. Add 1/2 cup Crisco and use a pastry blender or a fork and stir until "crumbly."
7Use a biscuit cutter, an empty can, or a glass to cut your biscuits. Be sure and put into flour first, so your biscuit won't stick inside the cutter.
8Be sure and grease your biscuit pan before putting your biscuits in it. I use bacon grease, but you can use PAM if you want to save calories.
9Put your biscuits into the pan and put some bacon grease on top. Not a lot, just enough to moisten lightly. This is another step that you do not have to do - it just adds flavor and makes them brown really well.
