    AmyZoe's Note:

    I love to make biscuits when I crave hot bread, and this one is quite good and fast to prepare. Paula Deen says this recipe is from Famous Recipes from Mrs. Wilkes' Boarding House. I found it in The Lady & Sons Too! (Paula Deen). I threw a splash of vinegar in the milk instead of using buttermilk and used all butter instead of shortening.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 16

    Yield:

    biscuits

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 450.
    2. 2
      Sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and make a well in the center.
    3. 3
      Cut in the shortening and margarine until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
    4. 4
      Pour the buttermilk and milk into a measuring cup and add enough water to make 3/4 cup.
    5. 5
      Pour this into the dry ingredients.
    6. 6
      Mix lightly and quickly with your hands to form a dough moist enough to leave the sides of the bowl.
    7. 7
      Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface.
    8. 8
      Knead by turning the dough away from you, pressing down with palms of hands, and pushing the dough away.
    9. 9
      Repeat 6 or 7 times.
    10. 10
      Work the dough into a large ball while kneading. Keep your fingers dry by dipping them into dry flour regularly.
    11. 11
      Pinch off portions of dough and place them on a well-greased baking sheet.
    12. 12
      Press lightly to flatten the biscuits slightly.
    13. 13
      Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
