    This is the recipe that our family uses. The dough will be very moist. Don't let that bother you. I always bake them in a cast iron skillet.

    Touch-of-Grace Biscuits

    Makes 10-12

    The secret of these sensationally light biscuits is the steam produced by a moist dough and baking the biscuits up against each other.

    Preheat oven to 475. Set a rack in center of oven.

    Blend together in a bowl:

    2 cups (measured by dipping cup into flour and leveling against side of bag) White Lily or Martha White self-rising flour, or 1 1/3 cup other brand self-rising flour and 2/3 cup granulated flour (i.e.Wondra or shake and blend), plus 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    large pinch of baking soda
    1 tablespoon sugar
    Between 1/8 and 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Work in with finger tips or pastry blender:

    4 tablespoons shortening (Crisco, Spry, etc.) (I use butter)

    Add and stir with a spoon until just mixed - dough will be wet and gooey:

    1 cup buttermilk
    1/2 cup heavy cream

    For shaping and baking:

    Spray 8-inch cake pan (I use a cast iron skillet) with non-stick spray. Have 1 cup non-self-rising flour in a pie plate. Spray a medium ice cream scoop or tablespoon with non-stick spray . Scoop up biscuit dough and drop in flour.

    Sprinkle with flour and roll in flour. Shake off excess and shape into a tall round. Place in cake pan. Continue process until all dough is used, pressing biscuits snugly next to each other. For wretched excess, you could brush bicuits with melted butter. Bake about 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Eat hot, turning out the panful of biscuits onto a platter, and gently separating them with a paring knife.

    This recipe makes great pancakes too! I just add 1 egg and enough additional buttermilk to make the consistency of pancake batter that you desire.

    Enjoy!!!

    Have you ever made these with butterscotch pudding instead of cocoa. My mom used to make these and some with the pudding but I don't remember how or what she all put in them. I'm hoping someone here has made some.
    Thanks for all your yummy sounding recipes.
