This is a quick, tender & light buttermilk biscuit, which requires no kneading. I took a couple different recipes of my grams and combined aspects of both and this is what I ended up with. The family loved them. Reheats well too! Nothing better than a hot biscuit from the oven slather with butter. Yum!


Enjoy!

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 c
flour
1 tsp
salt
1/2 Tbsp
sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp
baking powder
2/3 c
shortening
1 c
buttermilk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degree F

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.

With a pastry blender, blend in the shortening until crumbly looking.
2
Stir in milk, just until all is moistened.

Pour mix on a floured surface and pat together with floured hands. Do not knead. Pat out to about 3/4 inch thick and cut with 3 inch biscuit cutter, do not twist as you cut.

* Could also be rolled out and cut.
3
Place on ungreased sheet or line with parchment as I did. They can also be baked in a round cake pan. Brush tops with buttermilk or butter.

Place in oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until lightly golden and no longer doughy.
4
Serve hot with butter or jam. Makes a great biscuit for sausage gravy as well.
