Buttermilk Biscuits

This is a good recipe to use for Granny Wilkins sourdough starter.  If your starter is especially sour, add a little more baking soda.

2 cups plain flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup buttermilk (or sourdough starter)
1/3 cup shortening/oil/butter (use any)

Mix all  until a dough ball forms.  Knead gently 10 or 12 times.  Roll or pat out dough 1/2 to 1 inch thick.  Cut out rounds with biscuit cutter or a glass.  Bake on lightly greased pan at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

  1. Hi Lora,

    I don't know if you remember me, but I'm Opal's granddaughter. I was Linda Ustasiewski until I married, I'm now Linda Andrews. I met you at my grandparent's 50th anniversary. I love that you posted the recipes but where is the your grandmother's chicken and dumplings?
