Clabber Girl recipe for “modern” corn meal biscuits from Family Circle, November, 1957

Yields 12 biscuits

  • 1 1/2 Cup Sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup Cornmeal
  • 1/3 Cup Shortening
  • 2/3 Cup Milk
  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons Clabber Girl Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt

 

Directions

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl. Blend in cornmeal. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles course crumbs. Add milk all at once. Stir lightly with fork, just enough to moisten all the flour. Knead gently about 1/2 minute on lightly floured board. Roll dough 3/4 inch thick. Cut with 2 inch cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in 450 F (very hot) oven 12-15 min.
