Buttermilk Biscuits

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

At the request of one of my readers, (Jessica) here is the recipe for the buscuits that I posted earlier.

2 C. Flour
3 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Baking soda
4 T. Shortening
1 C. Buttermilk
(If you don't have buttermilk, you can do 1 C. Milk, and half a tablespoon of vinegar, and let it sit for 3 minutes or so. You can even do it half water, and half milk. Just double that for a double batch.)

Mix all ingredients, then add buttermilk while stirring. Make sure it's not too sticky, you may need to add a little more flour. Spread flour on the counter and knead the dough a few times and press it down with your hands, make them pretty thick, about 1 1/2 inches or so, just make sure you have one pan full. Cut them in circles, and place them in a greased baking pan. 

Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until golden.

Want fluffy, golden, biscuits???
When adding the flour, put it in a sifter with the baking powder, and baking soda, and sift away! It makes them really fluffy. 

I just made another batch today! ;) When I make them, I double the batch, I get two 8x8 round pans full. You could also do a 9x13 pan, or two 8x8 pans, whatever you have on hand. One batch makes one 8x8 pan. 

I just made these above today, the first picture is from another batch.
