How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  • Cut in the shortening until coarse crumbs form.
  • Add buttermilk, tossing and mixing until the dough forms.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead lightly until just smooth, and pat out to about 3/4" thick.
  • Using a biscuit cutter or a glass dipped in flour, cut biscuits.
  • Plase on an ungreased baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Bake until golden.
  • TIP: the less you handle the dough, the flakier the biscuits will be.

    I love your comments on the recipe. How do I join this society?
    I think that there are so many wonderful foods that are so easy to prepare and taste so much better, that there is no reason to buy pre-made, preservative filled, junk. Biscuits of all things are so easy to make, and they taste so much better then Whomp biscuits.

    I have done this a time or 2, I am going to do this again for my sweetie soon. Nothing comes close to a buttermilk buscuit.I like some red-eye gravy on mine too.

    Not to be mean about it but I for one hope your little society never takes off. LOL I have never been able to master the art of home made biscuits ( and I have tried and tried) and my family has had home made biscuits from a lot of people but they like my Pillsbury Flaky canned biscuits better than any home made they have tasted. Plus I don't want to get out of bed and have to deal with a mess like that every morning. Canned biscuits will forever rule at Gem's house. LOL :o)
