If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Southern biscuits (untested)

This recipe is handwritten in pencil and looks like it might be one of Grammy's daughter's handwriting (possibly Ann). Although there is a notation on the card saying "over for cinnamon variation" the card is blank on the back side.

  • 6 tablespoons margarine [I would use butter]
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup milk

  1. Cut margarine [butter] into dry ingredients
  2. Add milk until dough is almost sticky
  3. Remove from bowl and knead lightly
  4. [the instructions stop here]
I assume that once the dough has been kneaded, it needs to be rolled out and cut into biscuits using a biscuit cutter. The only other instructions are the oven temperature of 450°F and the baking time of 12-15 minutes.
