Or maybe they are her mom's recipe.....
In any case, I remember making them together in college .....
2 cups of flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
5 tbsp butter flavored shortening (or plain but I like butter)
3/4 cup milk
Mix completely. Turn onto lightly floured board and round up with you hands then press flat and cut biscuits as you go. The size you cut determines the yield.
Big and I love these with gravy. Middle loves with butter and honey. Little and Mimi like them with cinnamon sugar. In any case, a snow day or weekend favorite!
