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.

ingredients

directions

  • Into a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda and 2 tablespoons of sugar.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add yeast/water/sugar mixture and 2 cups of buttermilk.
  • Blend together with a wooden spoon until all wet ingredients are incorporated. The dough will be very sticky.
  • Place dough onto cutting board dusted with flour and knead lightly about 5 or 6 times by folding dough back onto itself.
  • 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.
  • Brush tops with milk and bake in 425 degree oven for 13-15 minutes.

    Let the dough rest for 1 hour. Since it’s a yeast based dough. Preheat a cast iron fry pan in oven, place biscuits with butter into fry pans to cook. The hot pan makes the biscuit edges nice & crunchy.

    Made these for a Sunday Brunch with family and they were great, towering, light and fluffy and went together easy. Served with a choice of chicken gravy or butter and homemade jam. They made me look like a star, fantastic recipe
