From the Kitchen of Cathy Blatnik
- 2 cups white flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup lemon lime soda (any brand), room temperature
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Lightly grease a 9 ½-inch round pan with non-stick cooking spray (if you don’t have that size pan, use an 8 or 9-inch round pan).
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and shortening. Mix well with a large spoon. When combined thoroughly, gently fold in sour cream and lemon lime soda.
- On a lightly floured surface, take the dough and knead it 20 to 25 times with the palms of your hands, until it’s about a ½ inch thick. I used a 3-inch round biscuit cutter and was able to get 11 biscuits out of that dough. If you use a smaller biscuit cutter, you will be able to make more.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits start to turn brown on the top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool for about five minutes.
Cathy is originally from Maryland, but has been living in the Midwest for more than 13 years. She has been "retired" from the paid workforce since 1996 to raise her family, which includes her husband, adult stepson, an adult daughter in college and a son in middle school. She has been baking and cooking for as long as she can remember in "Cathy's Kitchen". She is very excited to be able to share her recipes with other home cooks!
