Her daughter Sandy narrated the first part. "I got married and I called my Mama and I said, 'Ok, how do I make your biscuits?'
"And she said, 'Well, you put your flour in a bowl.'
"And I said, 'How much flour?'
"And she said, 'Well I don't know.'
"And I said, 'OK.'
"'And then you put your shortening in,' she said.
"And I said, 'How much shortening?'
"And she said, 'About three fingers worth.'
"And I said, 'That's not going to do. You're going to have to come closer than that.' Anyway we just kinda made due and I did learn how to make them. But, she can whip them out faster than anybody I know."
