I loved our visits to see my grandparents in Florida. I think I started my foodie mindset at a young age because all special memories have a flavor. Mine for these Florida visits were fresh squeezed orange juice from just picked oranges from PopPops back yard. Grandmas angel biscuits hot from the oven and amazing neon pink sea grape jam. My mouth waters for this again! One of the three I can share.
So Elizabeth never formally shared the recipe but my curiosity watching her in the kitchen. Ive gotten my version to them really close! I did replace the crisco with butter. Enjoy my memory.
Bisquick baking mix version
- 2 1/2 cups Bisquick (sifted)
- 1/3 stick butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tsp baking powder
- Flour for rolling/ kneading
Pre heat oven to 400 degrees
Sift bisquick and baking powder into bowl and pastry cut butter in to fine blend.
Add milk to just incorporate to a thick dough that is sticky.
Dont over mix- this will make biscuits tough.
Pour out onto floured surface fold kneading five or six times the created layers.
Roll out to inch thickness and biscuit cut rounds with cutter, glass or do squares with a knife. Place in buttered glass baking dish.
Let rest 10 min to rise – bake in hot oven 12-15 minutes based on thickness.
Enjoy hot! With butter, jam, ham, honey, … tum!
- ( if not bisquick- replace with 2 1/2 cups flour, 1/4 stick more butter and 1/2 tsp salt)
