DS NICE BISCUITS, SMALL AMOUNT 2 tablespoonfuls of shortening 1 cup self rising flour 1 teaspoonful of baking powder 1 cup buttermilk Use your blender to mix flour and shortening. Makes about 12 nice biscuits. —Mrs. T. A. Haley

BEATEN BISCUITS 1 quart sifted flour cup shortening (Crisco) 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup butter With fingers, work until mealy. Add 1 1/2 to 2 cups ice cold milk or cream. The dough should be almost too stiff to handle. Beat until it pops or bubbles. Roll out about 1 inch thick. Cut with small cutter. Prick several times with a fork. Bake very slowly in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes. —Mrs. Hugh E. Ray, Sr.

CHEESE BISCUITS 1 cup flour cup butter lb. hoop cheese, grated Speck cayenne pepper Cream the butter, add the cheese, and cream together. Add the cayenne pepper, the flour, and roll into small balls about % inch in diameter. Bake in a 375 degree oven for fifteen to twenty minutes. —Mrs. Fayette Williams 1/2 1/2

ORANGE BISCUITS Make a biscuit dough by your favorite recipe. Roll 1/2 inch thick. Cut in strips 6 inches wide, then spread with the orange paste given below. Roll like a jelly roll and with a sharp knife cut in one inch slices; place these in greased muffin tins or on a baking sheet and bake in a hot oven—use the following "Orange Paste Filling": 6 tablespoons butter 1 orange rind grated 2 tablespoons flour 1/2 cup sugar % cup orange juice In a double boiler cook all ingredients except sugar, until thickened. Add sugar and remove from fire. If sugar is added sooner, a chemical action takes place which prevents its thickening. Let it cool before spreading. I usually make this paste the day before using and keep it in the refrigerator. —Mrs. L. F. Garrett

SOUTHERN DROP BISCUITS Sift together 2 cups sifted flour 1 heaping teaspoon sugar 4 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt Blend in 3A cup Crisco—work until texture of corn meal. Add 1/2 cup milk—handle dough as little as possible. Drop a heaping teaspoon full of dough for each biscuit on greased cookie sheet. Chill in refrigerator. Bake in 450 ° oven for 12 minutes or less. Makes 8-10 medium sized biscuits. —Mrs. Liddon McPeters 5

LEMON CHIFFON PIE 1 tablespoon plain gelatin Vs teaspoon salt 1/4 cup cold water 1/4 cup lemon juice 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup water 4 egg yolks 1/2 teaspoon grated rind Dissolve gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water; in a double boiler put the slightly beaten yolks, the lemon juice and the other 1/4 cup of water with the softened gelatin and half the sugar. Cook very slowly over water until mixture begins to thicken perceptibly, then remove at once and place in a pan of cold water to cool. Meanwhile add the salt to the egg whites and beat until almost stiff and begin to slowly add the remaining sugar while beating. By that time the gelatin mixture should be to the quivery stage; then gradually beat that into the egg white mixture while still beating vigorously. This mixture will be very light and when it begins to get firm enough to look as if it will hold its shape turn it into a graham pastry shell. Set in refrigerator until ready to serve and cover with slightly sweetened whipped cream. If made on an electric mixer this pie will have a greater volume and will be lighter. Note, also that the entire amount of liquid designated in this recipe is 3/4 cupful. Use the same amount of liquid in any chiffon pie of these proportions and it will work out all right.
