Ask most people what they think about when they think of Southern food, and one of the first things they will mention is biscuits.
I was looking for a recipe to make homemade biscuits and I found one that called for regular flour plus leaveners. I know my sweet mother-in-law, bless her heart, used self-rising flour. (I believe my mom always uses all-purpose. Is there a difference in preference between Northern and Southern cooks?)
I made the biscuits using only three ingredients. Yes – only three (unless you count the stuff that is already in the self-rising flour – but I am not). For more information, go to King Arthur’s website (here) and you can read about SR Flour.
