Ready In

"The original recipe was found on a now defunct recipe site,I have made and enjoyed it several times.But it made a lot of biscuits,and at times that's too much for just two people. And I decided to reduce it by half, then made a couple of changes of how it was prepared.Posted to " ZAZZ " on 10/21/13. " Keep Smiling :)"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Step 2

Mix together all dry ingredients, and sift twice(double sifting is VERY IMPORTANT).

Step 3

Cut in shortening until flour looks like crumbly cornmeal or small peas.

Step 4

Add buttermilk and mix just until a ball is formed(you might have to add a bit more flour or buttermilk to get it just right).

Step 5

Knead for at least 3 minutes.

Step 6

On a floured counter top or board,pat dough (don't use a rolling pin) out to 1/2 inch thick.

Step 7

Cut four biscuits out with a floured biscuit cutter,or just pat out to a square and cut into four even pieces.

Step 8

Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet( I used greased parchment paper for easier clean up)and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.


No special items needed.

Good basic biscuits that I made to have with Tuna Wiggle poured over the top. I liked that they didn't get soggy!
