READY IN: 22mins




  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In medium mixing bowl, mix dry ingredients.
  • Using fork, cut in shortening until mixture resembles course meal with some tiny bits of shortening still visible.
  • Add buttermilk and toss with fork until mixture forms a soft dough.
  • Turn out onto floured board and with a floured dough scraper gently toss dough to coat with flour until dough is no longer sticky.
  • Pat dough into a disk and fold one half over onto the other half.
  • Pat out to about 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch thickness.
  • Using a floured 2-inch cutter stamp out biscuits (meaning cut straight down and up without twisting or turning cutter).
  • Place biscuits onto ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes or until biscuits are light golden brown. Serve immediately.
  • Note: If you don't have buttermilk you can use regular milk and omit the baking soda. They just wont be buttermilk biscuits.
