Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Magic Biscuits

Magic Biscuits

5 ½ C flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 T baking powder
½ t salt
4 T sugar
¾ C butter

2 C buttermilk, warm
1 T yeast

Mix the dry ingredients before cutting in the butter. Once you have coarse crumbs, pour in the proofed yeast in the buttermilk. Add a bit more flour if needed to make a dough that holds together.  Turn it out onto a floured counter, knead until not too sticky, roll out to ½ inch thickness. Cut into biscuits. Bake at 400 for ~15 minutes or until lightly browned. If you want to bake only a partial batch, just refrigerate the unused dough.  Makes about 24 biscuits.
