Biscuits From Scratch
The submitter said that she found this recipe in a newspaper so I thought I would make them this morning and am glad I did. My husband loved them so I'll make this recipe again.
How to Make Biscuits From Scratch
- Preheat oven to 475. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together and combine well. Make a hole in center of flour mixture and add in the shortening. Gradually add in the buttermilk mixing with a fork to break up the shortening. Now start combining well with hands until dough comes together and is smooth.
- Pinch off and roll in hands and place (biscuits touching) on greased cooking stone (or pan). Press down with knuckles a bit. Bake at 475 for approximately 10-12 minutes or until desired browness.
- Note: Any solid shortening is fine to use, even the butter crisco. In these biscuits I used Lou Ana Coconut Oil, which is actually solid shortening.
*You may have to add a little more buttermilk if needed.
