Big Daddy Biscuit Lab


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.

LOL, Mrs. Brown knows.

img_5455It’s a joy to see students making biscuits for the first time.

img_5454They’re always intimidated by the wet dough, but we like to get our hands in it.

img_5456I tell them they can always brush off the excess flour.

Biscuits galore, enough to feed an army of hungry students.


I’m always impressed with student’s first biscuits.
