       Title: Harriet’s Southern Biscuits
  Categories: Breads
       Yield: 8 Servings
  
       1 c  Flour, plus 2 Tablespoons
       1 ts Baking powder
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/4 ts Baking soda
       2 tb Crisco
     1/2 c  Buttermilk
       1 tb Crisco, for frying pan
  
   Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
   Blend in the Crisco until the mixture is coarse and
   grainy.  Harriet uses a fork, but I have better luck
   with a pastry blender.  Then, using a fork, stir in
   the buttermilk.  Do not overmix.
   
   Put on a floured board and knead just a few times.
   Pat out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut with a
   biscuit cutter or a glass. (Flour the cutter.)  Do not
   handle the dough too much, or it will get tough.
   
   Use a heavy black frying pan.  Place the 1 tablespoon
   of Crisco in the frying pan and put the frying pan in
   the over for about 7 minutes. Remove the pan from the
   oven and place the biscuits in the pan. Turn each once
   in the oil and bake the biscuits at 500 degrees for 10
   minutes, or until light brown.
