Grammy's Valentine Biscuits

Grammy’s Valentine Biscuits
From Grammy’s vintage Betty Crocker Cook Book

Nothing beats a plain old cook book with plain old recipes that are guaranteed to turn out. Nothing fancy schmanzy here…just basic staples.

Be sure to preheat your oven to 450*. It needs to be nice and toasty!


2 cups flour

3 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

¼ cup butter

¾ cup milk…the higher the fat content the better!


*Stir together dry ingredients. Cut in the butter {If you have a stand mixer, just use the flat beater}

*Add in milk and mix until dough is soft

*Roll out into circle about ½ inch thick

*Use a medium size heart cookie cutter to cut out biscuits. I got about 16.

*Place on baking sheet and bake @450 for about 10 minutes or until golden.

*Must serve with jam and cream...because they are oh.so.delish.

Bathroom update for those of you who want the scoop:

Now the ceiling is gone...II can see the roof top...some of the floor is out, so I feel like I am using a real live OUTHOUSE! Except for the fact that there is actually daylight coming up from the floor...creepy.

Last night my hubby was gone and I totally felt like I was spending the night in a cementary. It was freezing. I could smell the "attic smell" along with the "under the house" smell. Finally, I took a big ole towel and rolled ui up along the bottom of the door. Even our little dappled doggie is disturbed. :} She was digging on and off for a couple of hours...in our bed. LOVELY! ALL That, and hot flashes made for quite the night.

I think my hubby is going to get the insulation, fan, and sheetrock up today. The window is on order...so...
maybe a better night's sleep will be happening tonight! :}

Happy Tuesday.
