Just Plain Cooking
Back in 1990, Mom hand wrote a cookbook for me. She wrote the following: "All these recipes have been tested in my kitchen and are special to me. They are just plain cooking. Cooking requires a lot of time, a lot of patience, and plenty of love for special people who like good food." From now on whenever I publish one of her recipes from my cookbook, the title will be Just Plain Cooking . So let's turn on the stove and start with the breads!
Self-Rising Biscuits (Memaw's)
Set oven on 475 degrees F.
2 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
Cut shortening into flour. Add milk to make a soft dough. Place on floured board and roll out to 3/8 inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter and place on greased pan.
Bake at 475 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until brown. Serve while hot.
Now here is my favorite biscuit recipe in 2012:
