How to Make CATS HEAD BREAKFAST BISQUITS.. (w/ sausage gravy)

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven 450F..
    In a medium size bowl, mix flour,salt, baking soda, and baking powder together.
    Add shortening, and use a pastry cutter,unill a crumbly mixture like oatmeal is produced.
    Add the buttermilk to th center of the flour mixture.
    Mix with a spoon until the dough is slightly lumpy, and looks shaggy.
    Then with your hands, knead the dough in the bowl 3-4 times. It helps if you flour your hands, a little.
  2. To make cat head bisquits (the size of a cats head) pinch off a ball of dough 2-1/2 -3 inches, and pat with your hands into a thick bisquit.
    Put heads into a cast iron skillet (4) even a pie plate with any leftovers.
    Or all on a cookie sheet. etc. even a pie plate..
    My skillet held only 4 heads...so 2 went into a pie plate.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes..until golden brown.
    Serve with butter, jam, honey, apple butter,
    or like I do...
    serve your favorite recipe for sausage gravy ..MMMMMMmmm!!
  4. Cat head..
    DO NOT BAKE ONE!!!!
    Picture is to see the size..
    of a cats head!......LOL!
    ****NOTE; Plastic needlepoint PILGRIMS...
    I made, and every year they visit me!
    They seem enjoy my pies! LOL!
