Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Baking Powder Biscuits - Alda Jane Low

This are very old fashioned biscuits that, if made with plain shortening, don't taste like much of anything at all.  If you make them with butter flavored shortening, they have a slight taste.  They are the perfect vessel for jam, apple butter or for breaking up into soups and chili's.  I put peach jam on them and they went famously with the Bean Salad.  Make 15 biscuits.

  2 Cups All Purpose Flour                                                         1/4 Cup Shortening
  3 Tsp Baking Powder                                                               3/4 Cup Milk
  1 Tsp Salt                                                                                

Sift together dry ingredients.  Blend in shortening with pastry blender or fingertips until mixture remembers course cornmeal.  Stirring with a fork, add enough milk to make a soft dough that can be handled.  Turn onto a floured surface and knead lightly  for about 1/2 a minute.  Roll or pat to 1/2 inch.  Cut with a 2 inch biscuit cutter.  Bake for 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes.
