    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    This recipe is mine, from my mom, then grandmother. It was created for cold boxes or cold window boxes in the winter when you didn't want to use your ice box. Now we have a freezer. Nice when you want to stock up on biscuits. I like to use the lard.

      This recipe is very similiar to the one I have in my Farm Journal's Country Cookbook circa 1972. They are great with sausage gravy. Very budget friendly and tasty, too. Thanks for posting it!

      I like the fact that I can freeze the biscuits and use them later. I do this all the time with my yeast bread, but wasn't sure if I could w/ baking powder type biscuits. This is nice, because there are days when at the last minute, I need a bread for the meal. There is no waste, as I can cook only the amount I need. Thanks!

      I wanted to change my original review. The second time, I used a regular baking sheet, and with the adjusted flour amount, the biscuits came out perfect. Now my in-laws are hooked on them, too, and my husband's grandmother, who lives alone, is thrilled that she can bake just a couple at a time and have fresh biscuits whenever she wants them, without a whole batch going to waste.
