These are the delightful things you will experience when you travel Hwy 7North to Jasper and stop in for breakfast at the Cliff House Inn overlooking the majestic Arkansas Grand Canyon. Since the leaves died off early this year (AR, KS, OK hottest states in the country with major drought going on) we turned the air up to high, pretended it was fall, and made our annual pilgrimage up Hwy 7North a little head of schedule. Spectacular, as usual, and the Cliff House Inn didn't disappoint us either. The inn owners are always so friendly and they still cook the best breakfast in the Ozarks (with a view of the Arkansas Grand Canyon OTH/on the house). I especially like their light and fluffy Angel Flake Biscuits. Don't know for sure but, they probably make these scrumptious jewels via that famous Angel Biscuit recipe (got mine out of Recipes from Miss Daisy's) which I have shared with you below...
How to make Angel Biscuits:
3 cups self-rising flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup shortening
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cake of yeast, dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
Sift dry ingredients, cut in shortening. Add milk and yeast mixture to make a soft dough. Turn out and knead about 20 strokes. Roll to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut out biscuits and cook on a greased pan for 15 minute in a 425 degree oven.
FYI, stop and smell, but don't pick the zinnias...pretty pricey crop this year with the high cost of watering.
