Too Hot to Trot…
Since it is going to be a blazing hot day I decided to share a recipe with you all from the recipe blog that I have on wordpress.

Drop BiscuitsQuantcast

This recipe is from the Betty Crocker cookbook that I received as a wedding shower gift over 50 years ago. I have mentioned before how it is held together now with duct tape. I made these biscuits when Jim and I were just starting out with nothing but each other.
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
Mix together and cut in finely 6 tablespoons of shortening.
Stir in 1 cup of milk. Drop from spoon onto greased pan or into greased muffin cups.
Have oven preheated to 450 degrees. Bake about 10 minutes.

This is exactly how the recipe reads in the cookbook.

This recipe consistently gets the most hits each day of any recipe I have posted on my blog.

Stay cool you all!  Stay safe and be happy!!



  1. Now that's the TRUTH! SO HOT!!! Love quick and easy recipes. Thanks.

  2. STAY COOL today..I am not cooking at all..did that yesterday so we are all stocked up. Too hot to do anything outside for sure. Humidity really ZAPS me. Never could get homemade biscuits right..use Bisquick most when I make them.Today is an ice cream popsicle day.

  3. It stands at 66 for us at the moment and I know far more heat is to come. We've been avoiding the oven because it really heats things up. Have a great day my friend.

  4. By golly I will have to do those befor the boys go home.

    Yepper, that is a 17 yr old boy (tomorrow( and Katie has him in the middle of her paw pad. xoxox

  5. Hi Beth!
    Ouch, you are getting the heat for sure! I make those biscuits, too, and they are the best!

    We had our first hot day in France, not sure how hot, but I was sweating as we walked around the village of Pont-Audemer, and later at the hotel. I will post pictures tomorrow, but it's getting late and I'm tired tonight!

  6. Yikes - It is a scorcher for sure. We're just hibernating in the house. I hate to think of the power and light bill this month, but I wouldn't be without A/C for anything.l It's funny but I have that same recipie. It is a good one.

  7. I will make these biscuits when it's cooler. The ac is workin overtime here. Keep cool!!!!!

  8. That's a nice simple recipe. The kind I like. : )

  9. That is a pretty purple flower. BGB

  10. Nice and simple recipe. No rolling out, either.:) Betty Crocker has been my mainstay since I began doing my own cooking in my apartment almost 50 years ago! I have worn out about three "Dinner for Two" cookbooks.

    Stay cool, Beth!
