Elsie’s Biscuits, Star of Texas Bed and Breakfast

Elsie’s Biscuits are a recipe that came from the Blueberry Hill Inn, and we now serve at Star of Texas Bed and Breakfast.  They are a great biscuit and can be frozen and reheated, but right out of the oven with butter and jam just can’t be beat. enjoy!

2 TBS baking powder

homemade biscuit and jelly

1 tsp. salt
1/4 pound butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup buttermilk

1/8 tsp. vanilla

Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt. Cut in the butter, then add the other ingredients. Stir only until combined. Toss the dough in a little flour and pat it down with hands, do not roll it. When it’s 1/2″ thick cut into biscuits and place on lightly greased pan.  Bake for 12 minutes in a hot oven of 450*. When they are light and golden, they are perfect. Makes 8 large, 15 medium or 30 little biscuits.
