    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl mix flour with the shortening. (I like to use my hands). Pour in the Buttermilk. Use a spatula or spoon to blend.
    2. 2
      Once mixture is firm, (If mixture is still liquid add a little more flour -about 1/2 a cup) use your hands to knead and fold until the mixture forms a firm dough.
    3. 3
      Place the dough on a floured cutting board or hard surface. Roll out dough and eventually put into the 9x13-inch baking pan. Press dough into the edges of the pan so the dough is laying flat and even across the pan.
    4. 4
      Use a butter knife to cut 6 or 8 even squares into the dough. Make sure to leave half an inch of space between each square. Bake at 350°F for 15 - 20 minutes or until biscuits are slightly golden brown.
    5. 5
      Melt butter either in a sauce pan or in the microwave. Drizzle melted butter on top of the hot biscuits. Serve with jam, honey or peanut butter (my husband's favorite).

      Wonderful biscuits in the end. However, let me add that you need to add that extra cup of flour with the 1 lb (I used 2, 8oz measuring cups to get the 1 lb) because it's like waffle batter without it. So, go ahead and add the extra 1 cup at the very start and still keep extra at hand the kneading and shaping. I didn't really want a 9x13 pan of biscuits so I cut rounds from the dough with the cutter that I use for making shortcakes for dessert and I got 7. Lastly, set you oven higher than 350. I baked them for 20 mins and they were drier but pasty flour white and nowhere done, 5 mins more- same, 5 mins more- turn the pan and 5 mins more, I reset the oven to 375 and gave them another 7 mins. YAY, they were softly golden and baked to perfection. The end result was truly one of the best biscuits I have ever had! Wonderful flavor and soft texture. The only reason that I haven't given this recipe 5 stars is because of the discrepancies in the recipe and the actual working of it.
