Short'nin' Bread

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

"Mix up the flour, then you'll be fed. Mama's little baby loves shortnin bread." My grandfather used to sing that to me when I was a kid. I'd never seen a recipe for the famed "shortnin bread" until I started digging around for some very old, Southern recipes.

This was good. It was so easy to put together and I loved the slight sweetness and the buttery taste. Good recipe!
