ok, let me dig it up.

in the meantime, here is a really excellent cookie recipe:

(makes 36 cookies)

2 oz. Unsweetened Chocolate
6 oz. Semisweet Chocolate
2 T. Butter
1/4 c. flour
1/4 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 t. instant coffee powder or espresso powder
1/2 t. vanilla
6 oz chocolate morsels
2 1/4 c walnuts or pecans

Melt unsweetened chocolate & butter in double boiler. Sift together dry ingredients, except sugar. In large bowl, mix eggs, sugar, vanilla and coffee powder. Add the cooled chocolate mixture, then the dry ingredients. Mix in chocolate morsels and nuts. Drop by the teaspoonful on foil lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes, reversing pans in oven if necessary. Let cool at room temperature or refrigerate.

buttermilk biscuits:

2 c flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/2 c butter or shortening (mmmm i like butter, but they're more tender with shortening)
2/3 c buttermilk

preheat oven to 425. stir together dry ingredients. cut the very cold butter up into small very cold pieces, then drop into the dry ingredients, and, using your fingertips, work the mixture together until it is all irregular crumbs. add the buttermilk all at once and stir with a fork just until it forms a cohesive mass.
turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently (mnore of a folding process) 12-14 times. pat out to an 8x8" square and cut into 2" squares. place on ungreased cookie sheet (biscuits touching for light and fluffier, biscuits 1" apart if you want them darker and crisper.) bake 15 minutes or so and serve hot.

if you are me, brown a tube, all broken up, of gimme lean veggie sausage in some butter. if you are andrew, cook a tube, all broken up, of meat sausage. make a slurry by putting some flour in a jar with a lid with some cold water and shaking in all up (1/4 c flour, 1/2 c water?). pour that over the sausage and stir it up. it should be all boily. pour in some milk and put in salt & pepper. if you are me, put in some marmite to make it more brown and tasty. add more slurry if it needs it. add a little cayenne if you want. put in more butter if you want as butter is good.
that's more or less it.

I like shortening. it's fun to squish with your hands.
and yummy. well, not alone. I've got into deep frying with it through. eek. You just have to think about your arteries when you look at it.
