Old Fashion Butter Milk Biscuits
I was checking out the Biscuit recipes on the Fresh Loaf and I too am searching for the Biscuit Recipe for picture #2. The # 2 picture looks exactly like what my Mother made and I can promise you it did NOT have yeast in the recipe and was not made with SELF-RISING flour. This was her Mother's recipe. I know this because I made them when I was 16 years old. My Mother taught me how to make them, but after I graduated, went off to college, graduated,married and many busy years later I tried to make them and it was really awful. Mothers biscuits were exactlly as picture #2 . Just looking at those biscuits brought back memories of cold winter mornings, and a big platter of those biscuits, sausage or bacon, and cream gravy. I have her recipe, and it is well over 150 years old, but for the life of me I can not duplicate those wonderful biscuits. Her Mother was from Georgia, 1800. So they used Lard and regular Flour. Please, if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate all help.
