1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup shortening

1/2 cup water

3/4 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 cups milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 7 x 11-inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, mix together flour and salt. Cut shortening in thoroughly with a pastry blender until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in water and press dough together with your hands. Roll out pastry into a large rectangle. Spread the butter evenly over the pastry, then sprinkle on 1/4 cup sugar and nutmeg. Roll up the dough jellyroll style and pinch to seal. Cut into 12 even slices. Place the rolls in the prepared pan.

In a small saucepan, heat milk, 2/3 cup sugar and vanilla extract until mixture begins to bubble. Pour milk mixture over rolls. Bake in preheated oven until brown, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Cranberry Orange Bread Pudding

2 cups half-and-half cream
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 eggs, beaten
6 slices, Breadsmith Whole Wheat bread, crumbled
1/2 cup to 1 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scald half-and-half, heating in saucepan until tiny bubbles form around edges. Over medium-low heat, add sugar & butter. When butter has melted, add orange rind, vanilla and eggs. Mix in bread crumbs, then dried cranberries. Cook until mixture is smooth. Fill six 2-by-4 inch custard cups with mixture.

Southern Biscuits


2 cups of all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
A pinch baking soda
1/3 cup of butter
1 cup of buttermilk
Extra flour for working the dough

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Grease a 8" round layer cake pan. Sift dry ingredients together (except for the extra flour). Put in mixing bowl. place shortening on top, it should be quite cool. Cut in with a pastry blender or two knives. Pour in the cup of buttermilk and stir lightly with a fork. The batter must be very moist! If it is not then
add up to another 1/4 cup of buttermilk. The combination of a very hot oven, a small baking
pan and very wet batter creates much steam within the biscuit which makes them rise to great height
and wonderful lightness. Empty the wet batter into the shallow bowl over the cup and a half of flour. You will be preparing your biscuits right out of this bowl. Flour your hands real good and scoop out a very large heaping table-spoon of batter into your hands( you should end up with about 10 biscuits). Roll the piece of batter around in your hands just till it takes on a round shape. Keep your hands very floury so it (the batter) doesn't even get a chance to stick) Kind of shake off the excess flour and put the biscuit in the pre-pared pan. The biscuits should be nestled quite snugly together.
Put the pan on a rack that has been placed in the lower center of the oven. Close quickly and bake for about 12 minutes till they are high and golden brown

Paula Deen's Gorilla Bread

1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
2 (12-ounce) cans refrigerated biscuits (10 count)
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts or 3/4 cup chopped walnuts + 3/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray (I found success with a regular round pan). Mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon. In a saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over low heat, stirring well; set aside. (Add a few splashes of rum and cook an additional minute or two. Or use a different flavored liqueur or flavored extract.)

Cut the cream cheese into 20 equal cubes. Press the biscuits out with your fingers and sprinkle each with cinnamon sugar. Place a cube of cream cheese in the center of each biscuit, wrapping and sealing the dough around the cream cheese. (I found it worked best to make these into balls and then squashing them back into biscuit size to fully enclose the cream cheese.)

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the nuts into the bottom of the bundt pan. Place half of the prepared biscuits in the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, pour half of the melted butter mixture over the biscuits, and sprinkle on 1/2 cup of nuts.

Layer the remaining biscuits on top, sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon sugar, pour the remaining butter mixture over the biscuits, and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of nuts. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool

Place the dough on a floured surface and knead it 10 or so times (not too long), then pat it into a 1/2-inch-thick circle. Using a floured cookie cutter or drinking glass rim, cut the dough into 2-inch rounds and arrange them on an ungreased baking sheet.
Brush the tops with the melted butter and sprinkle on brown sugar.
