DIRECTIONS

  • Measure first four ingredients into a non-metallic bowl and beat until smooth.
  • Cover loosely with a damp towel/cloth, and let stand in a warm place 8 - 18 hours (the longer it stands, the stronger the flavor gets).
  • Stir batter down.
  • In another mixing bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients.
  • Cut in shortening until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
  • Blend in starter mixture and turn out onto lightly floured surface.
  • Knead gently 30 seconds.
  • Add more flour if necessary, to make a soft dough.
  • Roll out 1/2 inch thick and cut with a floured glass, or biscuit cutter and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 450°F for 12 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with butter, honey butter or jam.
