    Buttermilk Biscuits

    In my humble opinion, I make great biscuits. Here is the recipe that I have created. My Hubby agrees that these are the best.

    List of Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 1/3 cup fat (butter, Crisco, or lard)*
    • - 2/3 cup buttermilk
    • Melted butter


    1. Blend dry ingredients. Cut in fat until crumbly. Stir in enough buttermilk to make a medium soft dough, not too wet. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead only enough to hold together. Pat out inch thick and cut with a floured cutter. Place on baking pan with sides just touching. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake 400F. 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.

    Final Comments

    *I use 2 tablespoons lard and 4 tablespoons
    Crisco. I make them in a convection oven and bake until the bottoms are crisp. Can't be beat with country gravy.
