"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425. Sift flour and put 2 cups into mixing bowl. Add Crisco and work into the flour by hand until evenly distributed. Add buttermilk a little at a time, stirring until mixed; the dough should be wet and sticky. Grease a pan with Crisco. Place dough in pan in heaping tablespoons, with the spoonfuls touching each other. Pat the dough down very lightly with a floured hand. Bake for about 20 minutes or until biscuits rise and turn light brown.

Personal Notes:
Before we got married, Lee told me that I would never be able to make biscuits like his mother, so I really haven't tried! She really makes them by feel, but she tried to estimate amounts for this recipe. I think experience and lots of love are the keys to this recipe!
