    Here is my recipe for biscuits - These aren't your bisquick kind! This recipe has been handed down through my family a long time (with a few minor changes) and it's really good:

    2 Cups flour
    3 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. salt
    3 Tbsp. powdered buttermilk
    1 Tbsp. yeast
    1 Tbsp. sugar
    1 Cup warm water (approx.)


    In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt and powdered buttermilk. In a separate small bowl mix yeast, sugar and warm water. Allow the yeast to ferment in the small bowl (approx. 5 min.) Mix both bowls together - add more water if necessary to get the consistency right. Let sit 10 minutes. Pour EVOO / vegetable oil to thick coat on bottom of casserole dish. Roll out dough 1" in. thick and cut out biscuits with a small cup upside down. Now place them in oiled pan flipping over to coat both sides. Place biscuits close (not tight) and let rise 15 -20 min. Bake 375 degrees for about 20 minutes till the tops are brown.

    Adjust for high altitude if neccessary - More water and sugar and less yeast and sugar in tiny amounts.

    Here are my pic's:

    I actually grind my own wheat berries to add for a 1-1/2 cup wheat & 1/2 cup white flour. Gives a great flavor.
