Make these great tasting, quick, & simple ingredient biscuits.
When growing up my great grandmother Elsie always made homemade biscuits in the morning. Everyone in my family loved them, but never knew exactly how to make them, we knew it was simple, it’s only 3 ingredients, but we just couldn’t get them to turn out right, ask my mom, hers turned into pancakes instead of biscuits, or a biscuit cake.
Finally, I have the proper measurements, and process, And when I tell y’all it’s easy, it’s probably my favorite easy recipe.
Here’s what you will need:
2/3 cup shortening (I use Cisco)
4 cups self rising flour
2 cups buttermilk
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
Sift the flour, then crumble in the shortening, mix in the buttermilk. Stir together until completely mixed and no flour or crumbs are left. Sift out a little flour over a clean surface, I always put down clear wrap, it’s easier to clean up.
Roll and knead the dough about 10-15 times. Add flour to the surface of the dough when it starts to feel sticky.
You can cut the biscuits with biscuit cutters, or, I like to pull out balls and place them in a pan that’s greased with shortening. Bake until the edges brown.
