How to make Southern Rolled (Pinched Off) Biscuits from Scratch

I love me some homemade biscuits!  Those ones in a can are just not the same.  I’ve tried several different recipes over the years, but this is a new (or should I say OLD?) technique for me.  And I am definitely going to give it a try!

This recipe is demonstrated by a Southern lady who learned this from her Grandma when she was just a girl.  It’s done in a very unusual way.  The shortening and buttermilk go in a bowl which has a good amount of King Arther unbleached self-rising flour pressed against the sides.  Then she stirs around and around with her fingers until the liquid has collected enough flour to get it to the right consistency.  And what flour is left is just stored away for next time.  I find that pretty awesome!  You’d only have to grab your bowl and throw in the milk and shortening to start a new batch.

Watch Mama’s rolled “pinch off” biscuits and let me know what you think about it in the comments below!

Isn’t she just so sweet?  I could listen to her all day!  Have you ever made biscuits this way?  I don’t know about you, but I’m craving some biscuits and gravy!  LOL

Have a great day y’all!

A few tidbits for you

Sorry I haven’t been around for a while. I guess I was in a funk, but chronic pain can do that to you. Thank you for being patient!

One thing that happened this summer is that this (at the time the youngest) grandson learned how to walk!

And his bigger brother kept searching around his house calling out for me.  “Mawmaw…”  You know, in very sensible places like closets, the kitchen cabinets, and under the chairs.  LOL

The oldest of the grandboys started school!  And developed a new hobby.  Collecting acorns!

And next oldest started Headstart!  It’s so exciting to ride the school bus!!!

The latest big excitement was a new grandboy!  Grandma (me) was just enchanted!

And Great Grandma was just as tickled as she could be!

Mommy, Daddy and Big Brother were all so happy!  It’s hard work being a big brother, but he’s ready for it!

And to end the summer… my lovely baby girl enjoyed Grandpa’s roses!

So, it’s slowly feeling more and more like Spring!  We’ve had more snow, and then rain, and the days are starting to warm up a bit.  FINALLY!!!  And the more I’m feeling Spring, the more I crave some things that just scream SPRING!!!

Everyone is different, so they all have different things that make them feel a certain way.  Here are a few things from the interwebs that really help me get my season on!

Welcome to today’s Wordless Wednesday!  These photos are of a mushroom WIP I’m making out of polymer clay!  Jebediah is about 1 1/4 inches high.  I will be putting him in a scene that will go on Etsy!  Woo hoo!  I’m still working on him, but I hope to have him finished by next week!  I’d love to hear ideas for the scene!  I was thinking a little creature of some kind.  Maybe a snail?

 

See you next week!  Love and Light!
