Corn Meal Biscuits
Recipe from 1957 Clabber Girl advertising
1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup yellow corn meal
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Blend in cornmeal. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk all at once. Stir lightly with a fork, just enough to moisten all the flour. Knead gently about 1/2 minute on lightly floured board. Roll dough 3/4 inch think. Cut with 2-inch cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in a 450˚F (very hot) oven 12 to 15 minutes. Yields 12 biscuits.
If you don't have a biscuit cutter, just use an upturned drinking glass that's been dipped in flour.
