1/2
lb bulk pork sausage, cooked, crumbled and well drained
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using fork or pastry blender, cut in sausage, butter and pecans until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in buttermilk, adding enough to form soft dough.
