Monday Meals With Mincie: Biscuits

Biscuits made their appearance at most every meal Mincie made.  Occaisionally they would be replaced by cornbread or hoe cake, but that was the exception.  Always delicious and always appreciated by her family, she'd often even make up two pans, just to meet the demand for her delicious bits of dough.  Once baked and placed on the table, the whole family would pitch in to butter them while they were still warm.

Mincie's Biscuits
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup canola (or vegetable) oil
3/4 cup milk

1)  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2)  Mix dry ingredients. 
3)  Add oil and milk.
4)  Mix until thorougly moistened.
5)  Roll into balls.
6)  Bake 10 - 12 minutes until brown on top.

Mincie occasionally just rolled these into balls, by hand, which is what I did for this batch.  Normally, though, she'd use a drinking glass to roll out the dough and the same glass also served as the biscuit cutter.
