Lil' Mama's Big Biscuits

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!

How to Make Lil' Mama's Big Biscuits


  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.
