CORNMEAL BISCUITS

This recipe is from an old childhood friend.

2/3 cup yellow corn meal
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup sifted flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup shortening

Soak cornmeal in milk for 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles dry corn meal. Add the cornmeal mixture and blend all together. Drop by teaspoonsful onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes until lightly browned.

Yield: 18 biscuits
