BISCUITS AND GRAVY
Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups flour
2 ½ tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 ½ tsp.  sugar
¾ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. ground black pepper
¼ cup unsalted butter, cold
¾ cup buttermilk
¼ cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing

½ cup flour
4 cups whole milk
Salt, to taste
Buttermilk Biscuits
Preheat oven to 400ºF.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir in sugar, salt, and pepper. Using the large holes on a box grater, grate butter into the dry mixture. Mix with fingertips until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Slowly add buttermilk and cream, working mixture together with hands until a firm dough forms; do not overwork dough.
Roll dough on a floured work surface to ¾-inch thick. Using a floured 2 ½-inch round cookie cutter, cut out scones and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet 1 ½ inches apart. Press dough scraps into a ball and repeat.
Brush biscuits with reserved cream and bake on the top shelf for 15 minutes, or until biscuits are lightly golden.
Remove biscuits from oven and set aside.
Sausage Gravy
In a large heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil over medium heat. When oil begins to smoke, add sausage and stir with a wooden spoon to break up the pieces. Cook for 5 minutes, or until sausage begins to brown.
Add onions, garlic, and black pepper. Cook and stir for an additional 2 minutes. Add the flour and cook while stirring for 1 minute. Add the milk and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat; immediately reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 8-10 minutes.

TASTY N SONS BUTTERMILK BISCUITS
Makes about a dozen
Ingredients
3 c. pastry flour
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. sugar
2 tbsp. baking powder (sometimes I add 1/2 tablespoon more)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. salt
12 oz. cold butter
2¼ c. buttermilk (sometime I mix 1/2 buttermilk and 1/2 sour cream)
Preheat oven to 375°. Sift all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix well. Using a box grater, grate cold butter into dry ingredients and mix well. Add buttermilk and gently knead dough until the mixture becomes homogeneous. Do not overmix. The butter should remain cold throughout the mixing process. Roll dough to about 1 inch thickness and sprinkle a layer of flour over the top. Lift up half the dough and fold it onto itself. Sprinkle the top again with a layer of flour and repeat the folding technique. Roll dough to desired thickness (about 1 inch). Cut to shape. Lay biscuits on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and paint the tops with melted butter. Bake 12 to 15 minutes until completely cooked through. The reason for the sour cream, is that it protects against hardness in the biscuit. The added baking powder is because I like the slightly taller biscuit I get.

ROSIE'S BUTTERMILK BISCUITS
Makes 12 biscuits
2cups Self-rising flour
2tablespoons cold bacon fat
1cup cold buttermilk (full fat)
2tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place flour into a large mixing bowl. Fluff it gently and very briefly with a whisk. Add cold bacon fat and cut it into the flour with a pastry blender until pea-sized crumbs form. If you don't have a pastry blender you can quickly rub the fat into the flour with your fingers.
Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk.  Mix with a fork until the liquid and dry ingredients are just combined and a sticky dough is achieved. If your dough is too stiff, add 1-2 more tbsp. buttermilk. Turn the sticky dough out onto a lightly floured surface and then lightly sprinkle the dough with additional flour. Knead 5 or 6 times and pat dough out flat with well floured hands to 1 1/2" thickness. Cut dough into rounds using a 3-inch round biscuit cutter or cookie cutter; re-roll scraps and cut more biscuits until all of the dough is used. If dough wants to stick to the cutter, lightly flour it between cuts. Place biscuits, just touching, on a lightly greased 13 x 9 baking sheet.
9. Bake for 15 -20 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush the biscuit tops with the 2 tbsp melted butter. Serve warm

SOUR CREAM CHIVE BISCUITS
Biscuits are a classic southern staple, and to make yours as mile high as possible, mix the dough together right before baking and use ice cold butter for the flakiest texture.  I love these savory biscuits with a touch of honey and butter, still warm from the oven.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, cold and cubed
2/3 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons chives, snipped
Pre heat to 450 F
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl. Drop in the butter and use your fingers to casually mix it in with the dry ingredients. Don’t over mix.  There should still be a few lumps of butter, the size of peas, or even a little bigger. Two minutes or less of mixing should do it. Next add the sour cream and chives. Stir it up into a soft dough. Form the dough into a soft ball. Get a piece of waxed paper and lay it on your counter. Sprinkle the waxed paper with a little bit of flour. Place the dough ball on the flour and knead it about 5 to 10 times. Flatten out the dough with a rolling pin or your hands so it is about 3/4″ thick. Cut into biscuit shapes with a biscuit cutter, or the rim of a clean cup or can.  Lay the biscuits onto a baking sheet and bake them at 450° for  10-15 minutes, depending on their size. Makes about a dozen medium sized biscuits. Brush with melted butter before serving.

Roll out dough about 1/2 thick and into a rectangle Shape. Cut dough into 6 pieces. Take out pan with melted butter and dip both top and bottom in butter. Bake until golden brown.
GRAVY:
Brown up 1 pound sausage. You need some grease from the meat to soak up flour. If there is not enough grease in the pan, add a tablespoon of butter. Coat meat in flour (about 1/2 cup) and let cook for a few minutes. Start adding milk a little at a time, stir in and let thicken. Then repeat until you get desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste

OLD FASHION BISCUITS
1 cup of milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tablespoon salt
3 cups flour
1 egg
One cake of yeast (you cannot buy cake yeast anymore. So use one small package.)
Mix butter and 1/2 cup milk - add sugar, salt, then heat this mixture slightly (95-105 degree). Then stir in the yeast. You then need to let this mixture set for a few minutes until the yeast starts to activate. You can tell this when the yeast starts to bubble up, it takes about 10 minutes. Then put the rest of the milk in a separate container and beat the egg into this milk. Then you pour the milk and yeast mixture into a large bowl. You can then start sifting in the flour. After about half of the flour has been worked in you need to add the milk and egg mixture. The remainder of the flour is then worked in. Once this is all completed you need to cover it loosely with plastic wrap , and let it rise to about double the size. Next make round balls of the dough and put it on a cookie sheet. In order to roll the round balls you will need to put some flour on your hands or the dough will stick to your hands. Place the balls on a cookie sheet and let them about double again and then bake in a 350 degree oven for about 13 min. Or until golden brown.

OLD FASHIONED CAT HEAD BISCUITS
2 cups self rising flour
1 cup buttermilk
a lump of solid shortening the size of a walnut. This can be real butter, margarine, lard or solid vegetable shortening. This has to be at room temperature to blend smoothly into the dough. Do not, and I repeat, do not use a soft dairy spread - they contain so much water that they won't work for any baking purposes.
In a large mixing bowl, put the flour. Most flours today do not need to be sifted. Push the flour to the sides of the bowl to form a depression in the center. Place the shortening and a little of the milk in the center and start stirring with a big spoon. When the shortening is blended, add the rest of the milk, mixing just until blended and the dough forms a ball. The dough will be a little on the moist side. Place wax paper on a flat surface like your kitchen table and sprinkle flour on it. Roll the dough out on the wax paper. Do not handle the dough any more than you have to - it makes the biscuits tough. The less you handle it and the more moist the dough, the better your biscuits will be. Just pat the dough gently until it's about an inch and a half thick. Then cut out the biscuits. Do you know what I use for a biscuit cutter? I use a tin can that I cut both the bottom and top out of and removed the label. A one pound vegetable can is a good size. Cut out your biscuits and place in a greased pan. The pan can be either glass or metal, but be sure it is small enough so that the biscuits are all close together, touching - Remember, you want the biscuits to rise up, not out to the side. Another reason for this is that when the biscuits bake with their sides touching, you can pull them apart easily, but those sides will be very soft and tender, not hard and brown. This is a very important part of making good biscuits. Bake in a hot oven 400 degrees just until the biscuits are light brown, but you are sure the dough is done through and through. No one likes a biscuit that is still doughy, but neither does anyone like a hard crust either! You can brush melted butter on the tops of the biscuits when they are done, or before you place them in the oven. This is also a hint to keep the biscuits soft and moist. This recipe will make around 8 to 10 biscuits, depending on the size of your tin can. A variation of this recipe is to use tomato juice instead of milk. the biscuits will be red and you will love the flavor if you eat them with a slice of country ham in them! They do not rise as much as buttermilk biscuits.

CREAM BISCUITS
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon double acting baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar, if desired
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
Milk for brushing tops of biscuits
Instructions
Into a bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt, add the cream, and stir the mixture until it just forms a dough. Gather the dough into a ball, knead it gently 6 times on a lightly floured surface, and roll or pat it out 1/2-inch thick. Cut out as many rounds as possible with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter dipped in flour and transfer them to an ungreased baking sheet. Gather the scraps, reroll the dough, and cut out more rounds in the same manner until they are 10 in all. Brush the tops of the rounds with the milk and bake the biscuits in a preheated 425 preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until they are pale golden. Transfer the biscuits to a rack and let them cool for 5 minutes.

BISCUITS #1
flour
Crisco
Buttermilk
Chop Crisco into flour then add buttermilk, stir together until the dough is only slightly sticky. Take a piece of wax paper and put some flour on it, then roll the dough in the flour and knead until slightly firm. Press out and cut out biscuits. Cook at 450 until golden brown on top.
Gravy
Fry sausage in pan
remove sausage, leave grease in pan.
Stir in 1 or 2 tablespoons of flour into hot grease with salt and pepper. Important to get the right amount of seasoning here, because later is too late. one the flour is incorporated into the grease, add milk and stir till smooth. If you have a hand blender, it will help break up any lumps until you get the hang of it. Gravy takes practice.

BISCUITS #2
1 cup of milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tablespoon salt
3 cups flour
1 egg

HARDEE'S CINNAMON RAISIN BISCUITS
1 oz. Bran Flakes cereal
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp. butter, melted
2 1/2 cups Bisquick
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup tonic water
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Place cereal into blender. Add cinnamon and brown sugar and blend for about 3 seconds or until crumbled, but not powdered. Empty into small bowl. Stir in melted butter with fork until mixture is completely softened. Set aside. For biscuit dough, use a 2 quart mixing bowl. Stir Bisquick together with sugar and raisins. Put buttermilk, tonic, and vanilla into measuring cup without stirring and pour into Bisquick mixture. Use a fork to mix until all of the liquid is absorbed. Knead in the bowl with hands, dipping into additional Bisquick, to make dough smooth and no longer stick. Break dough up into 4 or 5 portions in the bowl. Sprinkle the flake mixture over the dough and then work it into it with your hands until most of it is evenly distributed throughout. Marbleize the dough more than just mix the flake mixture in. Divide into 12 equal parts and shape each into 1/2-inch thick patty, arranging together in 2 Pam-sprayed 8-inch round cake pans. Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes or until evenly golden. Remove and top with icing.
Icing:
With an electric mixer beat on high speed, 2 Tbls. melted butter, 1 teas. vanilla, 2 Tbls. sour cream, and 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar until smooth. Place one tablespoon icing on each hot biscuit. Allow to melt slightly and then swirl to cover top surface.
