Just wanted you to know that I am feeling completely bona-fide!
The proof is in the flour.
I am now making biscuits on a regular basis and they are stomp-down GOOD.
A friend from the South read my whiny blog and sent me a bag of White Lily Self-Rising Flour via priority post. She paid $10.95 to mail a $2.00 bag of flour. Lord-have-mercy! Thanks, Melinda!
I couldn't make it down South during the holidays, but I was able to find White Lily Self-Rising Flour when we went to Illinois for Thanksgiving. We brought back 15 pounds of the good stuff! Although I haven't quite used up one of the 5 pound bags, we have gained more than 5 pounds each!
Do THAT arithmetic, will you?
The best recipe for biscuits is the one on the back of the White Lily Self-Rising Flour Bag. I use solid chilled shortening instead of butter. Always use buttermilk! Also, I use my hands to roll out the biscuits - the old-fashioned way. No kneading or biscuit cutters involved!
