Mimi was my grandmother. I never called her anything but Mimi. I was the first grandchild and I christened her with that name. It stuck and all the grandkids called her that. Sometimes her children did too. She was a tough old bird. Independent. Raised on a ranch and boy could she cook. I remember her making these biscuits on a coal stove in the little oven. They came out perfect every time!
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Sift all dry ingredients together into a large bowl. Cut in the shortening until well mixed. Stir in milk with a fork just enough to mix together all of the ingredients until they hold together.
Lightly shape the dough on a board and pat it out or roll it out uniformly flat. Use a cookie cutter to cut out biscuits and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 425 F.
Makes 8-10 larger biscuits or 12-14 smaller biscuits.
Fresh sweet onions, sharp cheddar, crisp, sweet, nutty corn bead all in one muffin. Perfect as a side to fish or steak, with a picnic or in the morning. Add a grind of black pepper before baking for an extra kick.
Big Mama’s originals get a twist with various herbs and cheeses.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
