Itchy for Homemade


So I "scratched" a half recipe of Cathead Biscuits this morning.
We had run out of the canned variety, which I eat but don't like as well as the kind you get from ingredients that most kitchens have. :chef:
1 cup flour
1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp sugar
1/3 Tsp salt
4 Tbsp butter/margerine
1/3 + cup milk

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Then with a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until it is like cornmeal
Make a bowl in the mix and slowly add milk mixing and kneading with your fingers
When the dough becomes a ball, pour out onto a lightly floured surface
Knead a few more times (don't over do this or you'll end up with cookie biscuits)
Roll out to the desired thickness and cut with a cutter or drinking glass

Heat oven to 325 and place biscuits on a lightly buttered baking pan (I used a cast iron skillet)

Bake until tops are brown.
(Footnote: next time it will be a full batch with some sausage gravy)

Actually, Russ, "cathead biscuits" are closely related to scones.  They are more dense in texture than other types of biscuits; very similar in my experience.

Well, they are usually smaller than scones, and sometimes they do resemble a cat's head to some degree - especially the ones Mrs. Rr makes, sometimes they even have a pointy spot or two that might look like ears.

Warm cheese scones with lashings of butter and raspberry jam and a dollop of cream. Drool.

 I am certain I would agree to that.  Only problem I have found with scones is that they drive my blood glucose readings sky high, much more so than any other bread; go figure.
