Mom's Baking Powder Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
This recipe reminds me exactly of the ones I grew up eating. They are not the same as the southern biscuits that some may be used to. I made a few modifications: 50-50 Whole wheat and white flour, and used only butter instead of shortening. I'm also too lazy to dip them in melted butter/shortening, so I didn't. A lot of reviewers comment that they don't rise enough, this is probably true! I live at 6000 feet and based on other people's concerns of lack of rise, I didn't reduce the baking powder as I normally do when adjusting for altitude. These come out perfect at high altitude without adjustment!
