Honestly...they are light, big, fluffy and won't fall apart.
I created these because I ran out of butter and won't make them any other way!

Serves:

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 c
all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
white sugar
1/3 c
crisco
1 c
buttermilk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
2
In a large bowl (do not use a processor or mixer), whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in your buttermilk.
3
place onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 20 to 30 times.
Roll out to one inch thickness and cut out your circles using a doughnut cutter. You can get creative and use cookie cutters.
4
Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper 2 inches apart.
Bake for 12 to 13 minutes or until golden brown.
Watch your oven after 10 minutes to get the accurate time, I use a gas oven and this was the time it took for mine to bake.
