The Joys Of Cowboy Style Home Made Biscuits

2 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Salt
4 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Heaping Tbs Shortening
Sufficient Milk To Make Soft Dough (do not knead much)

Cut out Biscuits, Bake at 425 until a light, golden brown on their little tops. (It's a good idea not to seperate them on the baking sheet but, rather, keep them touching so they rise up - not sideways - and keeps them from getting lonely.)

Serve with butter, honey/strawberry jam.

Just made this marvelous concoction and I can tell you they are awesome.

I'd think they should be over an open fire in cast iron.

Never done biscuits on cast iron. But cast iron makes the best damn cornbread you can imagine!

Aren't cowboy biscuits what happens when cowboys don't get enough cowboy fiber?

Definitely, Mr. seclark. I should have said, Quasi-Cowboy Style. I've made them using a cast iron dutch oven in campfire coals many times and they turn out the same if you're careful not to overcook.

It's amazingly easy to make these (it takes about 15 or 20 minutes), there's very little clean up, and they taste fabulous when dressed up with butter and jam. It's amazing to me how good they are when you consider the ingredients.

Flour (no matter the source), water, salt, and fat have sustained cultures for thousands of years... and it's pretty tasty, too.

Absolutely, Mr. Stewie. Another example of Intelligent Design for, were it not for flour, we'd be forced to eat salt soup and would likely to have failed as a species.

I think that something happens to the ingredients during the cooking process that causes the biscuits to change and taste different. I mean, the end product doesn't taste like a bunch of flour, salt, etc. They taste like something else.

So I suppose this would be a bad time to mention how good those would be drenched in sausage gravy?

yaknow, you don't have to bake this mixture to create good eats.

boil a chicken/turkey and drop spoonfuls of the dough into the boiling water and it'll make excellent dumplings.

Mr. chagrin: Enjoy. My cooking hints consist solely of 1) Don't overwork the dough. For some reason, kneading has an adverse effect on biscuit "lightness" and 2) Arrange the biscuits so they are touching each other on the baking sheet. This makes them rise up instead of flattening out.

Mr. seclark: You are 100% correct. The same recipe makes outstanding old-fashioned dumplings.

I just made a mini-batch of these. Very good Mr. Fax. Now that money grubbing dough boy will never see another penny of mine! I'd make some gravy but.....I don't want to right now.
