    These biscuits are perfect for breakfast. You can smother them in gravy or slather in butter and jam. You can also freeze the uncooked biscuits and bake later.

    Serves: 24



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Into a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda and 2 tablespoons of sugar.
    2. 2
      In a small glass bowl add 1 tablespoons sugar, yeast and 1/4 cup of warm water. Make sure water is very warm but not too hot to touch. Allow yeast to bloom for about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Work shortening into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. I like to use my hands but you can use a pastry blender or two knives.
    4. 4
      Add yeast/water/sugar mixture and 2 cups of buttermilk.
    5. 5
      Blend together with a wooden spoon until all wet ingredients are incorporated. The dough will be very sticky.
    6. 6
      Place dough onto cutting board dusted with flour and knead lightly about 5 or 6 times by folding dough back onto itself.
    7. 7
      Roll out to about 1/2 inch thickness. Using 2 inch round biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
    8. 8
      Brush tops with milk and bake in 425 degree oven for 13-15 minutes.

      I made these biscuits and they were the most wonderful biscuits I ever had. The only thing is that it only makes 24 biscuits when I always make 30 Biscuits. I still give this 5 stars.
