How to make it

  • 1. Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  • 2. Cut in shortening or butter.
  • 3. Add and lightly mix buttermilk.
  • 4. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead gently for 1/2 minute.
  • 5. Pat the dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch.
  • 6. Cut with a biscuit cutter or small glass.
  • 7. If you want to bake the biscuits, bake 10-12 minutes at 450 deg.
  • For skillet biscuits:.
  • 1. Place 1 or 2 Tbs. of butter in the skillet and let melt, then turn the skillet to its lowest flame.
  • 2. Place your biscuits in the skillet and cover.
  • 3. When biscuits start to raise, turn them and cover skillet until the biscuits are done.
  • 4. The best approach is to keep an eye on them and turn them when they are browned and dry-looking on one side before turning them over.
