On the first cool morning of the year, my dear mother would always make these luscious, melt in-your mouth biscuits. The sweet aroma would fill the house and lead everyone to the kitchen for breakfast. These heavenly, cornmeal biscuits were out of this world, especially served with her homemade fig preserves. Easy and delicious! Cest' bon, cher!
Mama's Cornmeal Biscuits
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
3 tsp.'s baking powder
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup milk, plus a little more if needed
Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture becomes coarse. Stir in milk. (dough will be stiff)
Place dough on lightly floured surface and roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Use a 3 inch round biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with homemade jam or preserves. Serves 4.
