Winter Storm at the Cabin

I decided to spend another stormy night in the cabin. It certainly was a wild and stormy night but we didn't get as much snow as was forecast. I baked some buttermilk biscuits and had my dinner and breakfast in the cabin.

The recipe for the biscuits:

SACO Buttermilk Biscuits

4 Tbsp Buttermilk Powder

2 Cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp sugar

1/3 cup shortening

2/3 cups of water

Preheat oven to 450°F. Sift flour, Saco Cultured Buttermilk Blend, baking powder, soda, salt and sugar into a large bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is the texture of coarse meal. Make a well in center of flour mixture and pour in water; mix lightly with a fork, just until dry ingredients are moistened and dough holds together. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead lightly two or three times, then roll out with a floured rolling pin to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut in rounds with a floured biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or until biscuits are puffed and golden brown. Remove from oven and brush tops of biscuits with melted butter.
