    Chef #1346648's Note:

    After toying with several biscuit recipes, this is the closest to what I grew up with in Nashville. Not quite Miss Carol's, but they're good!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat Oven to 450* Farenheit.
    2. 2
      While oven is warming, mix flour with baking powder and salt. Then, cut cold ingredients (butter, shortening) into dry mixture with a pastry blender or two knives until no particles larger than pebbles are present; refrigerate mixture until the oven reaches temperature.
    3. 3
      Mix in buttermilk until mixture just comes together as a sticky dough; how much you use will depend on the day's humidity.
    4. 4
      Knead on a well floured surface by patting dough out into a sheet, then folding in half and in half again. Repeat 4 times.
    5. 5
      Using a biscuit cutter or a drinking glass, cut rounds that are about 3" in diameter.
    6. 6
      Place on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil (no grease needed) so that sides are touching.
    7. 7
      Bake for 14-16 minutes, until tops are golden brown.
    8. 8
      If desired, brush with melted butter before serving.
    9. 9
      Serve plain with butter, or with honey/jelly/jam/apple butter, or use to make breakfast sandwiches with bacon/sausage/egg/cheese or any combination thereof.
