This southerner knows her biscuits and just loved these. They're light and fluffy with a slightly sweet taste. As they bake up, the kitchen has the best aroma. These would make a great breakfast sandwich. Topped with your favorite jam or some gravy wouldn't be too bad either. The Test Kitchen

How to Make OLD FASHION BUTTERMILK BISCUITS

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix in dry ingredients cut in shortening add buttermilk. Stir till it clings together. Knead gently 25 to 30 times. Roll out to a 1/2 inch. Bake on an ungreased sheet 15 minutes at 450 degrees until brown. These make really nice size biscuits. I sometimes make them very large using my Blue Metal Coffee Cup for camping as my cutter.
  2. These are best used within a few days. Keep refrigerated. Makes nice breakfast sandwiches with fried bacon/sausage, eggs and cheese!
