"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

1/3 c. corn oil (Mazzola)

Directions:
Directions:
Stir all ingredients until mixed good. Preheat a cast iron skillet in 500 oven. Take out, put bacon grease or oil or butter to cover the bottom of the pan to keep biscuit from sticking. Depending on the size you want, about a tablespoon and lightly roll in flour and roll in hand until it is smooth (real gently). Pat it out in the pan. Put butter on top and put in oven and bake til golden brown. (The key is not to work the biscuit. The less you handle it the better. Too much flour and handling will make them tough and dry)

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I will never forget the story of the Prassie's granddaughters asking Jerry to come over and teach them how to make his biscuits. Best described by Tonja. Many times I have wanted to send a letter to Paula and get him on her show.
