Nashville House Fried Biscuits

Recipe Ingredients

1 quart milk

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 2/3 packages dry yeast or 1/6 cup yeast

1/2 cup shortening

6 teaspoons salt

7 to 9 cups flour


Add yeast to warm water. Add other ingredients and let dough rise.

Work dough into biscuits and drop into hot fat*. Serve with apple butter. Yields about 7 dozen biscuits.

Biscuits can be frozen individually and stored in plastic bags. When you work them up, don't let the biscuits rise too high.

* The fat should be slightly hotter than 350 degrees F. If fat is too hot, the biscuits will be soggy in the center.
