Super easy to make, these old-fashioned biscuits are a great weekend treat. Crispy outside and flaky inside, we really enjoyed these from-scratch biscuits. They'll be delicious with a pat of butter and some jam for breakfast. Or, smother them in sausage gravy. They can be served at dinner too with a hardy bowl of chili. Yum! The Test Kitchen
How to Make Country Biscuits
- Mom said she adds a little melted shortening in the baking pan and lays the biscuit in the oil, then flips it over to lay on the other side in the oil. She likes to place the biscuits close together in the pan. She says it will make softer biscuits and if you want crusty biscuits do not add oil to the pan and place them apart from each other. I was surprised to see her prick each biscuit with a fork. She said it helps the steam escape and will make the biscuit flaky.
