In honor and memory of my sweet ex MIL, the late Joan Kelly, born and raised in Louisa KY.

Any meal she served these with became an EVENT.

Alabama Biscuits

Joan Kelly's

2 1/2 cups AP flour
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
6 Tbsp. shortening
1 pkg. yeast
1 cup buttermilk, warmed

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening. Dissolve yeast in warmed milk. Combine wet and dry quickly, mix, knead 20 to 30 strokes.
Roll out 1/2" thick. Cut into rounds.
Melt some butter and brush on half the rounds.
Top each with another round (stack).

Let rise until double in size.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes at 375 - 400 degrees.

If common sense were truly common, wouldn't there be more evidence of it?
