It’s biscuit lab day and we use this Big Daddy recipe here. I really like this recipe because it teaches students to measure shortening, though I don’t use it at my own house.
It’s great to see students measuring and kneading. I tell them biscuit making is a well-mastered skill and that’s why fast food restaurants hire little old ladies to make theirs in the early morning.
One of my students who works at McDonalds replied, “How did you know we had an old lady working at our store?”
LOL, Mrs. Brown knows.
It’s a joy to see students making biscuits for the first time.
They’re always intimidated by the wet dough, but we like to get our hands in it.
I tell them they can always brush off the excess flour.
Big daddy biscuits require no greasing of the pan.
And they turn out quite big daddy;0
They are perfect with butter brushed on top.
Biscuits galore, enough to feed an army of hungry students.
I’m always impressed with student’s first biscuits.
