Biscuits?

What's your preference?

Mine is plain old canned, aka whap, biscuits. I like the smaller ones better than the larger ones.

I hope I'm not banned for admitting to this.

    My favorite is the Betty Crocker buttermilk recipe.

    For whompom bisquits the plain Ole little ones are my favorite.

    You can buy a biscuit mix for those. Just need to buy a couple of bags of different shredded cheeses to make 'em. Right tasty.

    I buy the Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits in a bag. They're pretty good. Being single, I don't feel like making a big mess for a half dozen or less biscuits.

    I used to make my own years back, but got out of the habit when my weight went WAY NORTH!!! But one thing, they ain't health food.

    If you really want fine home made buttermilk biscuits, whatever recipe you use will have oil or shortening in the recipe. I substitute REAL HOG LARD!!! And you have to be real attentive when you're cutting that lard into that flour, because if you over do it, if you need it too much it makes them tough. Just need them enough to get the lard and flour mixed. Also, pay particular attention to the recipe concerning baking powder, baking soda, and salt. These can make the difference in so so biscuits and fantastic ones. One more thing. I use Calumet Baking Powder and White Wing flour. That's just my own thing there. But it seems to me the best I've made were with these ingredients.

    But if I don't feel like jacking with all this, I just get me a can of Grands. I keep them in the refrigerator.

    My wife can make the good old fashioned buttermilk biscuits like Granny used to make, and I love them best. But she won't make them except for company, these days. I have made them myself, but never got very good at it, so I mostly do without.

    What inspired me to learn how to make biscuits was listening to Jerry Clower.

    Bisquick....doesn't take much longer than popping open a tube....as long as you don't overwork the dough, they're damn good biscuits...especially with butter and sausage gravy. If I'm in a hurry...Grands are an acceptable substitute....

    I buy a local brand of frozen biscuit dough, or, in a pinch, the Pillsbury frozen.

    Ah, you Philistines. Good biscuits do NOT come out of a can. They're easy enough to make with self-rising flour, Crisco, and buttermilk. The canned biscuits are awful and should be declared illegal or at least declared unpalatable. They don't even taste like real biscuits. I believe they're made with palm oil and other such artificial and unnatural fat.

    Do yourselves a favor and make the real thing at least once in your lives. Lard is the very best fat, but Crisco doesn't do a bad job.

    I miss my grandma's homemade biscuits. She was a pro at it. I was to young to even think about recipes when she passed away. I sure wish I has the recipe she used because I have tried and never eat a biscuit as good as hers were.

    Cream biscuits. Much easier to make than trying to cut butter in.

    Flour, lard, and buttermilk! We had a cook at my grandmother's restaurant once who made biscuits with beer- - - -pretty good ones!

    I like the Grands flaky biscuits. I'm glad they finally got smart and started making smaller cans of 4 or 5 biscuits, it was a waste to have to pop open a can of 8 biscuits for the missus and I only to eat 4 or 5 and have to throw out the rest.

    Crisco changed the formulation a few years ago, and it really screwed with the consistency of my MIL's pie crusts and biscuits. But the cheap store brand stuff still works like it used to.

    No, we weren't that rude. It's usually just something like lighting a sack full of dog crap at their door, and watching them stomp it out...or something equally benign...like maybe a dead rat under the car seat, or blocking up the rear end so the tires barely touch the pavement...good natured stuff.
