Living in the South, you start to believe that you have to have biscuits with every meal (and my ass looks it) but, honestly, I don't like my biscuits. I'm sure I could work on that, you know, when I'm not breast feeding or trying to seem attentive to hubby (heretofore referred to as "Mr. Devilin") but right now, I'm using an adapted Irish soda bread recipe to fill that gap.
Preheat the oven to 350 and spray a 9x13 casserole dish (you could put these on a cookie sheet but they are kinda wet and will spread out, not up).
In a big bowl:
4 cups all purpose (AP) flour
3 tbs sugar
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt (kosher, please)
3/4 tsp baking soda
6 tbs cold shortening (marg will work in a pinch but really you should throw that crap out)
1 1/2 cup buttermilk or sour milk (this is a great way to use up that milk in the back of the fridge that seems a little funny-just hit it with a splash of lemon juice)
** you can also use the buttermilk powder in this--add the dry powder to the flour mix and add the water for the milk
Mix all the dry ingredients together, then cut in the shortening with a fork or pastry blender (don't buy those things--they give you weird callouses). Make a little well in the mix and add in the egg. Next, stir in the milk (or water) with a rubber spatula and mix JUST until everything comes together and there aren't any major pockets of flour.
With a icecream scoop (I use a yellow handled baby--cant remember the ounces) scoop batter into prepared pan. Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes. You want them golden on top but not dried out so test with a toothpick (you bought a cake tester??? silly girl) after 15 minutes.
You could let these cool but, seriously, you'd be missing them at their best.
