DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all dry ingredients. Whisk to ensure all are fully incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, combine milk and vinegar, stir, and let sit at least 5 minutes. (Buttermilk is too viscous and has too high of a fat content. This combination works better from a consistency standpoint and sacrifices negligible taste).
  • Cut in shortening and combine, but leave some small lumps.
  • Stir in milk mixture, one third at a time, until fully incorporated and a solid, sticky mixture is present. Transfer to workspace and kneed mixture adding flour as necessary until the mixture is "just" not sticky.
  • Roll out approx 5/8" thick and cut into 2 1/2" biscuits.
  • Transfer to greased baking sheet and bake 15 minutes at 450.
  • After 15 minutes (or until slightly browned) generously brush butter on tops and bake an additional two minutes. Before removing from oven allow to slightly cool, then serve warm!
