Dutch Oven Biscuits
This week I continue to reminisce about wonderful bread I have had in my life. This picture reminds me of another favorite . . . Dutch Oven Biscuits. The picture was taken in 1939 near Marfa, Texas. These Cowboy biscuits are made with real buttermilk, and plenty of shortening. They are then cooked in the dutch oven by putting the iron pan over hot coals, and then more hot coals are placed on top of the iron lid.
So, how many of you know how to make buttermilk biscuits from scratch . . . and how many of you could make them in a Dutch Oven?
