How to make it

  • Pre-heat oven to 425 deg F
  • Sift together Flour, Baking Powder, Salt and Sugar
  • Cut in Shortening (or butter)
  • Stir in Buttermilk until a dough is formed
  • Turn out dough onto floured surface and kneed
  • Using your hands (NOT a rolling pin) spread dough out. Want to have dough about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Using a cooking cutter cut shapes.
  • Put biscuits on cookie sheet and bake. 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Tips:
  • * For tall, fluffy biscuits, with soft sides, place shapes on pan with sides touching.
  • * For brown crispy biscuits, space sides approx. 1 inch apart.
  • * The dry ingredients, when mixed together (everything minus the buttermilk), is a clone for store bought biscuit/pancake mixes.

    " It was excellent "

    I made these twice sometime during October 2015. The first time they didn't rise at all. So I patted them out to about an inch second time. Much better! Rose to normal biscuit height. I didn't use any sugar in these, not a believer in sugar in my biscuits. Thanks for the recipe Hartwig! Httpwwwgrouprecipescom139608biscuitshtml
