How to make it

  • 1. Measure all dry ingredients and place into a large bowl. Cut in shortening thoroughly, until mixture looks like meal. Stir in buttermilk.
  • 2. If dough is not pliable, add just enough buttermilk to make a soft, puffy, easy-to-roll dough.
  • 3. Round up dough on lightly floured cloth-covered board. Knead lightly 20 to 25 times, about 1 minute.
  • 4. Roll out until 3/4 inch thick. Cut with floured biscuit cutter (you could also use a glass).
  • 5. Place on greased cookie sheet.
  • 6. Cover with a clean cloth and let rest for about 15 minutes.
  • 7. Bake in a pre heated 450 F (230 C) oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. They should be a golden brown.
