This recipe is soft and tasty, similar to a famous fast food restaurants breakfast biscuit, so good with honey and butter and my homemade Blackberry Jam.

How To Make soft and fluffy buttermilk biscuits

  • 1
    In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  • 2
    Add the shortening and butter, cut into flour with a Pastry Cutter or two forks until the mixture resembles small peas.
  • 3
    Beat the egg and add the buttermilk to the flour at the same time, Combine just until well mixed, do not overwork.
  • 4
    Roll out the dough to about 1" thick, cut biscuits into rounds Place on cookie sheet or skillet brushed with Crisco. Brush tops of biscuits with butter before baking.(Tip: Sometimes I pat the dough out into a big square and cut them with a knife or pizza cutter, I cut the dough into a square shape, this way you use all the dough and have no scraps, (Who said biscuits have to be round???)
  • 5
    Bake in a preheated oven at 450* degrees until golden brown, rotate the pan halfway through baking time to insure even browning. Mine took about 18-20 minutes to brown.
