These are good and simple to make. I chose butter over shortening. There's a little too much b powder in these (but I'm very sensitive to and finicky about tasting baking powder in biscuits) but tolerable. I didn't need the full amount of milk required. I just added until the dough was very moist but not too gloppy (don't you love these technical terms?), hand shaped and placed in baking pan.
I made these biscuits as part of mine and SO's dinner on 1/15/09.I measured all the dry ingredients, and added the shortening. After adding the buttermilk, it looked more like a very thin pancake batter.I had to add almost another full cup of flour to make it thick enough to handle.My SO seemed to enjoy them.But I wish I could say that these will be made again, but they won't. But thanks for taking the time to post them.
My mother makes these biscuits with self rising flour and omits the baking powder, baking soda, and salt. She always uses shortening. Instead of rolling or kneeding, she flours her hands and rolls portions lightly and places in a round cake pan, sides touching. Thanks for posting the perfect Southern Style biscuits!

I am a wife, Mother and Grandmother. I am a native Texan and can't imagine living anywhere else. My Grandmother taught me to cook before I could see the top of the counter. I remember standing on a stool in her kitchen learning to make pancakes. My Mother loved to cook and it seems she was cooking (or cleaning) most of the time. So those are the two ladies responsible for nurturing my love of cooking! <a href="http://s245.photobucket.com/albums/gg77/monji74/?action=view¤t=groupie1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/gg77/monji74/groupie1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> As you can see I cook and review recipes more than I post them. That's because I am a pinch of this and a dollop of that cook and it's hard to put those recipes down on paper. <img src="http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
