Even though the pie part of the Codfish Pie was easy, and the biscuits were easy, it did all take time. As a result of taking time, my son the lawyer complained massively that we didn't eat until 8:45 or 9:00.
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons melted shortening
2/3 buttermilk, approximately
- Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
- Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
- Stir in the shortening and buttermilk to make a soft dough. Work on a floured board lightly until dough can be rolled. Roll out to one half inch thickness and cut into rounds.
- Place rounds on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake ten to twelve minutes.
