I am making this in to a double-linky post. First, it is Blue Monday~ so I am linking up with SmilingSally. I know you'll recognise the blue in this post.
It is also time for Novel Food at Champaign Taste. For several years now we have joined in to post a recipe that is inspired by a novel.
This year, I am going back to our roots... With a recipe from 'Fried Green Tomatoes @ the WhistleStop Cafe'. If you haven't read the book lately... it is perfect for that first fall weekend. My recipe from the novel is Buttermilk Biscuits~ just like Sipsey would make. They just wouldn't be the same with out a little Crisco.
In the BLUE can!
Sipsey's Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp soda
1/2 cup Crisco
1 cup buttermilk
Sift dry ingredients together. add Crisco and blend well until like a fine meal. Add buttermilk and mix. Roll out thin and cut into desired sized biscuit. Bake in a greased pan at 450 until golden brown.
We are looking forward to Fannie Flagg's visit this fall.
~ she's got a new book coming out soon! Y'all enjoy!
