Saturday Breakfast Food...

As a child I would get up on Saturday mornings and we would eat homemade biscuits and gravy or pancakes and we had eggs and bacon with it all. I have since let go of so much bacon because of my age... and the whole weight and cholesterol and healthy lifestyle issues but we still eat the carbs. This morning was biscuits with butter and jelly and we ate it while watching some cartoons we have on ROKU (Netflix box). So we had breakfast, cartoons and a lazy morning. I also had coffee and that makes me happy. :) Here are the biscuits...


2 c. sifted AP flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 c. shortening
2/3 c. buttermilk or sour milk

Sift dry ingredients together. Rub or cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly. Add milk to make a soft dough. Turn out on lightly floured board or pastry cloth and knead gently for 30 seconds. Roll out 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured biscuit cutter or sharp knife. Bake on ungreased baking sheet in hot oven (475°) for 12 minutes. Makes about 12 biscuits.
