DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat the oven to 450 Degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Generously cover the bottom of an 8" square glass baking dish with Canola Oil, and set it in the oven.
  • Combine Buttermilk and Flour in a mixing bowl.
  • Add water until the consistency is slightly sloppier than dough. This wonderful little recipe works with a variety of consistencies - from slightly soggier than normal dough all the way to just-about-pourable.
  • Add the 3 1/6th cups of Oil, and mix as little as necessary to combine all ingredients. Overmixing can lead to tough biscuits, so be careful not to fall for that trap!
  • Take your glass dish from the oven, and pour/scoop/scrape your dough into it. Smooth it over the top if necessary, to ensure even sized biscuits. (no worries if you don't do this well, they still taste great).
  • Oil a blunt knife and dip it in flour, and use it to cut your dough into 9 even squares.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, checking at 8, until they're golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and serve.
