When I teach children the basics of home cooking, I always ask if any youngster has ever eaten a baking-powder biscuit, and not one hand has ever been raised—though some youngsters say that they have had the pop-open, canned sort of biscuits.
Fewer people today know how to cook than ever have in the history of our country. Homemade biscuits, along with so many other old recipes, have been lost and forgotten. That's a real shame. A napkin-lined basket of hot biscuits, served with butter and honey, can make a good meal great and a drab meal good. More important, well-made Baking-Powder Biscuits will bring everyone in the house together at the family table.
