ingredients

directions

  • PREHEAT oven to 400°F; COMBINE 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon sugar, 4 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in a large mixing bowl; CUT in shortenings until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • STIR in 1 cup buttermilk just until a soft dough forms (dough will be very loose and sticky at this point).
  • SPRINKLE flour over a large wooden board; TURN dough onto a floured board and knead gently 10 to 12 times or until no longer sticky, re-flouring board as necessary while kneading.
  • DIVIDE dough in half; GENTLY pat or roll each half into an 8-inch circle 1/2-inch thick.
  • CUT out biscuits – pressing straight down – with a 2-inch biscuit cutter.
  • REFORM scraps, working it as little as possible and continue cutting.
  • PLACE cut biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet with edges barely touching; BRUSH tops of the biscuits with whole milk.
  • BAKE for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • IMMEDIATELY brush biscuits with margarine (or butter) after baking.
  • SERVE hot and enjoy.

    Awesome! I did one thing different i did not knead the dough 10 times. I patted the dough out folded it in half turned 90 degree and repeated 4 times ( laminated) after cutting i put them in the refrigerator 20 minutes while I preheated oven to 500. Put biscuits in for 2 minutes and then lowered heat to 425 for the remaining time. Better than KFC

    Mine were fine only not as golden as the pictures, and took me about 25 minutes with the rack in the middle of the oven, maybe I'll need to lower it. Also, it took me longer kneading and they didn't turned out as crusty as kfc's, but still pretty good for the first time making biscuits.

    When you say add shortenings I'm guessing you mean both shortening and butter flavored crisco listed on the ingredients?, or just the shortening?
