1 quart flour

2 tsp. salt

1/2 tea cup soften butter

milk


Mix salt and flour; work in butter and add enough milk to make a stiff dough. Knead a little, then whack it with a rolling pin for about 15 minutes. Roll out, cut small, and tick with a fork. Put on a grease baking sheet and bake in a hot oven until lightly browned.

This might sound a little odd but it is a recipe of my great-grandmother's. I copied it the way it was written.

Quoting rmp:

what oven temperature?

I have no idea. It says hot so maybe 375* or more. This recipe has been around for years; long before they had the temperature in ovens regulated.

I have some in the oven now. We'll see how they come out before I post what I did.

1 mom liked this

I just pulled some out of the oven. Here's what I used so maybe this might help.

4 cups flour

2 tsp. salt

1 stick butter

Just sly of 2 cups milk

I combined all the ingredients and mixed until the dough was stiff. Then I seprated the dough into two balls and then started to whack each ball (which I did for about 10 minutes). Then I rolled out one ball and used the rim of a canning jar to cut the dough into a circle. I did experiment with different thickness of the biscuits. Then I baked the biscuits at 400* until lightly browned. 

Now these biscuits don't raise and are dense but they are suppose to be.
