GRANNY'S BISQUITS. These are the bisquits my granny use to make(God rest her soul) I watched her make these so many times when I was a kid. I have never found a recipe that comes close to these. They are very moist and delicious.
- Mix flour and buttermilk together until mixture is stiff but not dry.
- It will be sticky On floured surface turn dough out.
- Add flour on top of dough and knead until dough is kind of dry but still sticky in the middle.
- Pat dough out to about 1/2 in thick and cut with cutter.
- In a cookie pan melt about 1/4 c butter flavored crisco (or reg. Crisco) in a 425 degree oven When melted remove from oven, tilt to cover pan.
- Then, tilt pan so extra oil runs to one end.
- Take each bisquit and dredge in the oil so that both sides of bisquits are coated.
- Place bisquits close together in pan (touching).
- Now bake at 425 degrees F until the tops are brown.
- THESE ARE ABSOLUTELY,NO DOUBT ABOUT IT THE BEST, MOST DELICIOUS, MOIST, BISQUITS YOU HAVE EVER TASTED.
- Hope you love these as much as we do.
- Let me know how you like these.
For not being chock full of fat like all my other biscuit recipes, these were really good. I dredged mine in melted margarine instead of shortening and used "buttermilk" that I made with milk and lemon juice since I didn't have "real" buttermilk on hand. They were surprisingly flavorful and had a nice buttery crunch on the outside that reminded me of the crunch that pancakes and hush puppies get sometimes from being fried. I found them to be just a little too salty, but that may have been from using margarine instead of shortening. I will probably try them again with shortening soon. Thanks!
These were incredibly easy and the short list of ingredients made it even better. I love the texture of the inside and how soft and moist they are but yet the outside gets a bit of a slight crunch to them. I love these!!
fantastic bisquits. i was looking for the perfect bisquit recipe to make chicken bisquit sandwichs. this was perfect recipe. they were moist on the inside and a little crispy and flaky on top. i will make this bisquit recipe often. it's very important not to kneed it to much or your bisquits will be tough.
