-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup shortening
1 cup milk

Mix the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder in a bowl or in a food
processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the shortening and cut in or
process until the mixture is the consistency of coarse meal. Pour in the
milk and stir or process just until the dough holds together. If it is
dry or crumbly, add more milk. If it is too wet, add more flour. Knead
briefly in the food processor, then turn out onto a floured board or beat
1,001 times with a rolling pin. when it's ready, the dough should "snap"
when you hit it. Fold the dough in half. Roll out the folded dough until
it is 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a 1-1/4-inch biscuit cutter into small
rounds. Prick each round with a fork, making two parallel sets of holes in
the biscuit. keep rolling out the dough, folding before cutting, until
all the scraps are gone and you have made about 100 biscuits. Preheat the
oven to 350 degrees. Place the biscuits on a lightly greased pan. Bake
for 30 minutes, until crisp, but not browned. They should open easily
when split with a fork. They will keep for weeks tightly covered in a tin
or in the freezer. Split in two before serving. From Nathalie Dupree's

Biscuits

Recipe By : Jewel Sharp


Serving Size : 2 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup self-rising flour
1 spoon vegetable shortening -- the size of a small
egg
buttermilk -- fresh

Use enough buttermilk to make the dough really sticky but still enough to
knead and roll out.

Mix the ingredients together (add the buttermilk a little at a time). Turn
out the dough on a floured board and knead in more self rising flour (but
try not to handle the dough too much!). Roll out the dough to about 1/4
inch and then fold the dough over to double it and press on it lightly.
This fold in the dough will make the biscuits pull apart easily after they
are cooked. Cut out biscuits about 2 1/2 inches in diameter using a glass
dipped in flour. Re-roll the dough as needed. Place the biscuits in a
baking pan up close against each other - this will make them rise higher.
Some people put a little bit of vegetable oil in one end of the pan and
run the tops of the biscuits through the oil then place them in the other
end of the pan. This makes them get crustier and browner on top.

Bake the biscuits at 450F until they are lightly browned (about 15
minutes). Serve with butter, jelly, honey, or filled with bacon, sausage,
etc. 1 cup of flour makes about 4 or 5 biscuits, but you can increase the
recipe easily, just always use one spoon of shortening the size of a small
egg for each cup of flour.

Don't get discouraged if they don't turn out right the first few times, it
takes practice. Be sure to use fresh ingredients.

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
--scones-
2 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoon butter (use the real thing)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 lg egg
1/2 cup raisins -- or currents
milk
sugar
lemon curd-
4 lg eggs
1 pinch salt
1 3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter (real)
2 tablespoon lemon peel
1/2 cup lemon juice -- fresh

For Scones: Heat oven to 425~. Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in
butter. Add raisins or currents. Mix buttermilk and egg together. Add
all at once to flour. Mix with fork just until mixture clings together.
Form into ball, turn out on floured surface and knead gently until smooth,
not more than 5 turns of the dough. Pat out til 1/2 inch thick and cut
with a 2" cutter. Place on baking sheet 1 inch apart. Brush tops lightly
with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 10 minutes until golden brown.
Serve with Lemon Curd.

For Lemon Curd: Beat eggs in top of double boiler. Stir in remaining
ingredients. Cook over simmering water 30 minutes, stirring frequently
until thick and smooth. (I do not use a double boiler, but use a low heat
and watch closely to prevent burning). When it has thickened, remove from
heat. It will thicken more when cooled. Cool, cover and refrigerate.
Keeps 2 to 3 weeks in refrigerator. This has become a holiday breakfast
tradition for our family and I give small jars of the Lemon Curd as gifts
along with the Scone recipe for friends who bake.

1/4 tablespoon parsley, freeze-dried
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasonings
1 pound bisquick baking mix
8 3/4 ounces cold water
1/4 pound sharp cheddar cheese -- grated
1/8 cup butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix bisquick, water and cheese. Drop by large
spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. After baking,
(while hot) brush on melted butter or margarine mixed with garlic powder,
parsley flakes and italian seasoning. (Amounts will vary by the size batch
you make, but a little goes a long way.) Serve hot.

The Red Lobster manager's recipe is for a large quantity, so you'll have
to reduce the ingredient quantities by the size batch you desire. Note:
For a smaller batch I usually use 2 C. Bisquick, 1/2 cup cold water, and
3/4 c. grated cheddar which will yield about 12 biscuits.

You may also substitute soda water or gingerale for the water, if desired.
