Thanks! I tried it with shortening instead of butter but it came out the pretty much the same. I've been grabbing many many recipes from the internet lately and I also thought it was weird to use powder and soda. The person that gave the recipe claimed that the soda was needed whenever buttermilk was used to avoid the bitter taste (unless you like that of course). I don't know since I'm not much of a cook! Also I use buttermilk powder instead of the real thing.
Maybe this next batch I'll use milk shortening and forget the butter and buttermilk.
I know all about the 60's thing! Been there myself!!
Thanks for the help.
I've also tried this one and it worked out well also.
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder (3 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/3 cup shortening
1 cup milk or buttermilk or yogurt
P.S. There are mighty crumbly and good. I lucked out when trying them. There great with sausage gravy but try and butter one and pick it up...you end up eating it with a fork!!
I know exactly what you mean. I had a couple leftovers biscuits in the fridge but after all this talk I wanted to make another batch. Good thing the Red Wing game just came on!! There's not enough time between periods to make a batch. In the morning I'll try again!
From one OF to another OF Welcome to the boards.. My mother took her recipe to the grave for her biscuit recipt. They would almost float off the plate and you could pull them apart and butter them. Ive cooked and baked for the last 45 yrs and I can not duplicate her biscuits, and I have tried and tried. Dang.
