Hello, my name is Liesel Wolf, and I was Elaine's heroine in Never Trust a Pretty Wolf. Read the excerpt from the book, and then I'll tell you how to make those biscuits.
If only he didn’t look like a rugged cowboy come to life.
She’d always had a weakness for those rugged, outdoor-looking
types, not that you’d realize it if you knew William. William looked
sophisticated and city-born from the top of his stylishly cut hair to
the sole of his elegant Italian shoes.
She did not want to go there. William was her past. Daily
she prayed that it would stay that way.
She slipped into her jeans and twisted her damp hair into a
knot on top of her head. No use bothering with makeup because
impressing Andy Bryce wasn’t on her ‘to do’ list. Haphazardly, she
tossed her things into her bag and ran to her car. To her surprise
Andy was waiting for her with a big cup of coffee and a white
“Coffee and a ham biscuit?”he asked.
“I guess. Thank you.”Liesel hated to take anything from
him, even a cheap breakfast, but hunger compelled her to eat it.
Even though she hadn’ expected to like heavy food in this hot
weather, the biscuit tasted great. One thing about Southern
cooking; everything she’d eaten had been good.
Most people buy there biscuits frozen today, but even though they're good, they can't beat the fresh, homemade variety. It's easy to make them too. Biscuit making isn't hard at all, not when you have the proper porportion of ingredients. Here's my recipe for biscuits. It was passed down to me by my mother who got it from her mother before her. If you try it, let me know if you like it.
2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup Crisco
1 cup buttermilk.
Mix the Crisco and flour until well blended. Add buttermilk and stir. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface. For pretty biscuits, use a rolling pin to get a uniform height. Cut the biscuits with a cutter and bake at 350-425 until nice and brown. (I've given a range for the temperature because I've seen ovens vary so much.)
