Biscuit Recipe

I’m looking for a biscuit recipe like my grandmother in Arkansas used to make. It tasted like a roll rather than a biscuit. She used fresh milk and baked them in a wood stove. Does anyone have this recipe?

From the Hillbilly Housewife:

Take a look at the first comment. Looks like a perfect recipe to try. Thanks so much for sharing.

Here is a recipe I make that sounds like what you might like

Grandma Stephanie’s Biscuits
1 pkg yeast
1/2 cup warm water (almost hot)
1 tablespoon sugar

41/2 cups self rising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted shortning or clean rendered lard
1 1/2 cup milk or buttermilk

In a tall glass or large mug dissolve the yeast in the warm water and add in the 1 tablespoon sugar and set aside in a warm place.

In a large bowl sift all dry ingredients together. If the yeast mixture has risen well add it to the dry ingredients with the shortning and milk. Mix just enought to form a stiff dough. Dump it on a floured surface. (It will be very moist and still a bit gooey) Do not knead! Gently turn to flour both sides then pat out to about 3/4 inch thick. Cut out with a glass dipped in flour or a large cookie cutter, place in an ungreased pan with sides. Bake at 400F until browned 12-18 min or until golden brown.
Makes a couple of dozen large, light biscuits that freeze very well.
Hint: I freeze them on a cookie sheet then vacume pack them 6-12 at a time while frozen and put them back in the freezer. Sure makes it easy when you have last minute company.

I have tried this recipe twice. Did not turn out well, although the yeast seemed good..the completed product was too dry even though the dough was very moist and gooey. Still looking..I really thought this might be a refrigerator/freezer standby..I am not experienced in bread making but I so want to learn!
