Bake

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1/2 c
crisco
1 c
buttermilk, cold
2 Tbsp
buttermilk , to brush tops

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Whisk dry ingredients together in a bowl.
2
Cut crisco into the floor mixture with a pastry blender or fork until it resembles course crumbs.
3
Make a well in the middle of your flour/fat mixture and pour your buttermilk in. Stir until combined and pulls together in middle of bowl.
4
If too sticky, add little flour. If too dry, add a little more buttermilk. Flour hands well and transfer dough onto a floured board.
5
This is the MOST important step. The least you mess with the dough the better. Flour hands well and turn the dough over on itself about three times, flattening out a little each time. The last time press out into a rectangle about 1/2 thick.
6
Using a floured glass size of your choice, cut out biscuits and place close together in a greased iron skillet, filling the pan. Lightly brush buttermilk across the tops
7
Bake in a preheated oven of 425 degrees until lightly browned on top! Enjoy your fresh hot biscuits with butter and some local honey or slip a sausage patty in it for meaty breakfast....
