    cook from scratch's Note:

    My father-in-law likes "cat-head" biscuits. For those of you from outside of the deep south, a "cat-head biscuit" is simply a southern buttermilk biscuit the size of a cat-head. He told me, "That way, it doesn't fall apart when you slice it for (homemade) figs (preserves.) I like to bake them with the sides touching so that they are soft on the edges. If you prefer a crunchier biscuit, place them about 2 inches apart on a flat stone/pan.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cat-hea ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 450°F
    2. 2
      Measure 1 cup of buttermilk into liquid measuring cup. I use 3/4 cup whole milk with a splash of Heinz White Vinegar. Let sit a few minutes until you need it.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl, measure the flour by spooning it into a one-cup measure and leveling off with a knife. (This is very important!) Sometimes I sift it. Most of the time I do not.
    4. 4
      Make a deep well and add the oil and buttermilk.
    5. 5
      Stir gently until moistened. Sprinkle with even flour to allow handling of the dough.
    6. 6
      I shape my biscuits by hand but you could also roll them out and cut them. Place them in a 9x9 Pampered Chef Baker (stoneware.) I have used Pampered Chef stoneware for the last ten years and it has never failed me. However, for those of you still using metal bakeware, just use a regular square baking pan.
