Me too...I would love to watch my grandmother make biscuits one more time...I have a recipe of sorts that I wrote down...She didn't use one...."Just put some flour in a bowl, and add some Lard/shortening" -- How much shortening Grandma??? "Oh..I dunno...maybe a piece about the size of a Hen egg" ..
She didn't roll them out, she just kinda "choked off" some dough...gentle rolled it into a ball...then lightly patted it out in the pan...She always made two pans, and cooked them separately..When the first pan was all gone, the second pan was just coming out of the oven
Anyway...Mine never were as good as hers...Had to be the way she handled the dough...
