Nashville House Fried Biscuits

  • 1 quart milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 2/3 packages dry yeast or 1/6 cup yeast
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 6 tsp salt
  • 7 to 9 cups flour image placeholder

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° F. If fat is too hot, the biscuits will be soggy in the center.
