Buttermilk biscuits like mom used to make

Biscuits can go with just about anything, especially sausage gravy. You can also add different things to them to go with any meal.


2 cups self-rising flour ( if you don’t have this flour, use all-purpose flour but add , 2 teaspoons baking powder, and a dash of salt)

1/4 cup shortening (yes, I said shortening)

1 cup buttermilk

melted butter


Preheat oven to 475

Mix dry ingredients. Use a fork (or pastry cutter) to cut in the shortening until it looks like little pebbles.

Add buttermilk, but do not over mix.

Spread a good layer of flour on your workplace and turn out your dough.

Gently knead and fold several times. Using a rolling-pin, roll dough until it is approximately one inch thick.

Cut out your biscuits with a  biscuit cutter (or glass), reshaping dough until it’s all used.

Place biscuits on cookie sheet so they are just barely touching. Brush with melted butter and bake until golden brown.
