DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  • Blend in the 2 Tablespoons Crisco until the mixture is coarse and grainy, using a fork or pastry blender.
  • With a fork, stir in the buttermilk.
  • DO NOT OVERMIX.
  • On a floured board pour dough out and knead 4-5 times.
  • Pat the dough out to about 1/2-inch thick.
  • Cut with biscuit cutter or a floured dipped glass into rounds or pizza cutter for squares.
  • It is very important not to handle the dough too much as it will get tough.
  • Place 1 Tablespoon Crisco in heavy black cast iron skillet; place in pre-heated 500º oven for 5-6 minutes.
  • Crisco and skillet should be very hot.
  • Remove skillet from oven and place the biscuits in the skillet, turning each once in the oil.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or till light brown.
