How to make it

  • 1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F. In large bowl, combine flour and sugar; mix well. With pastry blender or fork, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk; stir with fork until soft dough forms and mixture begins to pull away from sides of bowl.
  • 2. On lightly floured surface, knead dough just until smooth. Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with floured 2 1/2-inch round cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3. Bake at 450 degrees F. for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter. Serve warm.
  • TIP To substitute for buttermilk, use 2 1/2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice plus milk to make 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons.
  • Don't overwork the dough, rather fold and knead gently.
  • Prep Time: 30 min
  • For Gravy
  • Whisk together the 3 cups milk, flour, and salt and pepper, until flour is dissolved. Pour into a skillet. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 15 minutes. Brown sausage in separate skillet, stirring and breaking up until cooked through; drain.

    I served the gravy recipe to 200 people at a social event.Most said it was the best gravy they had ever tasted. I used ground pork instead of sausage, to control the taste better.
