Amish Quick Self-Rising Biscuits

These easy to make biscuits are delicious for breakfast or in your lunch bucket. A great treat to send with your children's lunch. Split and spread with honey or jelly instead of the same old sandwich.

Prep Time: 
Cook Time: 


  • 2-1/3 cups Whole Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons White Distilled Vinegar
  • 6 cups Self-rising Flour, Plus More For Kneading
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 cups Lard (OR Butter OR Shortening OR A Combination)
  •  Melted Salted Butter, For Brushing

Preparation Instructions

(Important note: You may substitute 2 1/2 cups buttermilk for the milk/vinegar mixture.)
(Important note #2: If you use salted butter instead of shortening/lard, decrease the amount of salt you add.)
Preheat the oven to 475 F.
In a measuring pitcher, combine milk and vinegar. Stir together and set aside for 10 minutes. Note: You can use 2 1/2 cups buttermilk instead of the milk and vinegar if you have some on hand.
In a large bowl sift together the flour and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the lard (or butter or shortening or both) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring gently with a fork or wooden spoon until it all comes together. Flour the surface, then turn out the dough and knead 10-15 times, adding a little flour so it's less sticky.
Roll out dough to 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick and use a biscuit cutter to cut medium to small circles. Place on a baking sheet 1/2 inch apart and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and immediately brush on melted butter. To die for!
***Baking time will vary depending on the size of the biscuit cutter you use. I made mini biscuits, which took about 9 to 10 minutes. Larger biscuits will take longer, so keep an eye on them as they bake.

Amish Clothing Patterns

As a Christian, I want my daughters to dress modestly. Unfortunately most dresses available for little girls suffer from one or more deficiency in the modesty area. Either they are too short, or they are emblazoned with logos that scream "look at me."

The Amish and conservative Mennonites sew their own clothes, for the most part. The plain styles of the Mennonites are not readily available. The few online shops charge very high prices. I am sure the prices are fair, considering the labor and quality workmanship, but my twins grow fast.

I have occasionally found used Mennonite dresses at a thrift shop in Wilmot, Ohio. But finding plain dresses for my daughters is almost impossible.

I have recently found a source for dress patterns. Friends Patterns has a wide selection of dress patterns and many other patterns.

Simple, modest dresses.

Amish Cup Cheese Recipe and Facts

Amish Cup Cheese:

Cup cheese is a very soft, sour cheese that has been made for centuries by the
Amish and Mennonites of Pennsylvania Dutch country. This spreadable cheese is
said have a stronger odor than Limburger and a gluey consistency similar to molas-
ses. It is easy to prepare, and is usually made by cooking processed American
cheese with butter, baking soda, water, and milk.

Cup cheese is sometimes made with cottage cheese rather than American. In this
variation, the cheese is combined with cream, butter, baking soda, and salt, and
these ingredients are boiled together until the cottage cheese curds have melted.

Occasionally Parmesan cheese or cornmeal is added to the mixture. The cheese is then
stored in a pot, or cup, in the refrigerator. When sealed with a tight fitting lid to
prevent it from drying out, it will keep for several weeks.

These types of cheeses are a staple in Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine, where they are
often made in large quantities and served at weddings and church suppers. The soft
cheese is spread on homemade bread or crackers and is often topped with home-
made jelly. Cup cheese is also used in many Amish dessert recipes to make pies and
cheesecakes and is added to potato dishes, eggs. and soups as well.

This is a wonderful dressing for salads. But, an Amish friend of mine showed me another use for it. Mix the dressing into some hot, green beans. Makes the green beans much more palatable. Actually, it is quite delicious.

1/2 cup real mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk, well-shaken
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Sea salt or kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Dash of white vinegar
1 Tsp Paprika
1 Tsp Cayenne powder

With the back of a fork, mash the minced garlic with a sprinkling of sea salt until it forms a paste.
Combine all ingredients and whisk well.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving to let the flavors mix.
Consistency is a highly personal thing, as is garlic content. You can easily thicken or thin your dressing by using less or more buttermilk. Start with 1/4 cup if you prefer a thicker dressing. Add up to 3 cloves garlic, if you are a garlic fan.

Amish Church Maple Peanut Butter Recipe

The Amish hold church services every other week. Some groups, like the New order Amish, hold Sunday School on the off weeks. Church is held at the home of a member, with families generally hosting once a year.

The couple hosting the services also serves lunch on the Sundays after the church service. In many Amish churches the noon meal consists of peanut butter sandwiches with ham and cheese along with home-canned red beets and pickles.

Cookies, tea and coffee are also served, generally the cookies are baked by friends or neighbors which gives the hostess a nice lift.

The church peanut butter spread is one of my favorite items served. It is added to a sandwich with the ham and cheese. Sounds weird, but ham and peanut butter go great together.

Amish Breaded Steak and Gravy Recipe

Amish Breaded Steak and Gravy Recipe
A delicious meal that sticks to the ribs. It uses an inexpensive cut of beef to create a delicious meal. The original, Amish recipe used 3 times the ingredients, making a dozen breaded steaks. I have reduced the ingredients to make 4 servings. Enough for most English families.
Steak & A Biscuit.

  • 2 cups of vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs of round steak, cut into four chunks, pounded out about 3/4 inch thick
  • 3 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 large eggs, beaten with 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 1/4 cup of milk
  • 2 cups of all purpose flour, plus another 1/4 cup for just the gravy
Begin by heating the oil in a medium cast iron skillet. 
Create an egg wash. Take the eggs and stir them up with 3 tablespoons of the milk.  Add two cups of the flour to a medium casserole dish, and a two teaspoons of the salt and one teaspoon of the pepper. Mix well.
Dip your meat into flour, lightly coat, the, dip into the  egg wash, then back into the flour mixture. Set on a rack for a couple of minutes until you have another one coated. Repeat with the other two.
Your oil should be around 350-370 degrees. Carefully add a steak into skillet, and fry for about 3-5 minutes on each side. You will notice that the juices will begin to sprout up while you are frying. When you flip to fry the other side, make sure the juices run clear.
Preheat your oven to 225 degrees. Once the steaks are fried, place them in the oven to keep warm as you make the gravy.
Drain the oil. Reserve four tablespoons and add in a quarter cup of the flour. Whisk for about two minutes.  Add in the milk, about a cup at a time and continue to whisk. This is the labor intensive part, but oh so worth it. Season generously with black pepper and a bit more salt. Yes, continue to whisk.
Taste and season the gravy accordingly. Keep whisking. Once the gravy comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and continue to whisk.  The gravy should be thick, but not too thick. If it becomes too thick because you haven’t whisked enough, add a bit of water to thin it out.
Remove one of the steaks from the oven, plate, and ladle the gravy over the top. Serve with mashed potatoes and biscuits.

Why is Autism non-existent in the Amish community?

People outside the alternative health community are often confused by the lack of autism in the Amish people. The Amish do not experience autism, or most of the other learning disabilities that plague our technological society. They live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, at least by contemporary standards.

Amish have little Autism

  The Amish live free of the chemicals and toxins we have in our foods, they do not vaccinate their children, nor do they live with technology buzzing all around them twenty four hours a day, seven days a week like the rest of the public does.

The Amish also do not suffer from Autism or the learning disabilities that normal children suffer with. People outside the alternative health community are confused and wonder at this particular health issue.

Their diets consist of organic, fresh, homemade, locally grown meals, the result is a people, void of all chronic diseases, a healthier people. In the Amish community heart disease, cancer and diabetes, are virtually non-existent. How is it that people without chemically engineered prescription medicines and chemically engineered foods, are healthier?

The truth of health related to foods and medicines is an embarrassment to those in the "big business" industry To the dismay of the mainstream media and the medical establishment, this has resulted in a healthier people, who are void of all of our chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are virtually non-existent in Amish villages. Equally non-existent are our modern, chemically-engineered medicines, enhanced (chemically engineered) foods, G.M.O. (genetically engineered) foods, and of course, vaccines. How is it that those who are without the so-called “miracles” of modern orthodox medicine are healthier? The truth about health, medicine, and how they both relate to the Amish has become an embarrassment to some rather powerful people.

In Olmsted’s case, the pharmaceutical vaccine activists put their well-funded efforts behind disparaging him and the Amish article, falsely claiming that a vaccine-autism link has been “debunked.” One result of their efforts can be seen in the skewed editing of Olmsted’s Wikipedia biography. It’s worth reading so that you can begin to recognize the wording and hallmarks of vaccine activist propaganda in blogs, articles, ads, on the news and in social media.

There have been 3 (yes three) verified cases of autism in the Amish, and two of those children were vaccinated. No information is available for the third child, who was likely vaccinated himself. The strong correlation between vaccinations and autism is becoming undeniable, unless you work for the medical establishment, the government, or Big Media.
