IntroductionThis is the original recipe I used to win the state biscuit championship in 4H so many years ago. It can be made with less calories but using lower cal ingredients and still be pretty tasty! This is the original recipe I used to win the state biscuit championship in 4H so many years ago.

2 cups self rising flour
(2 cups all-purpose flour with 1.5tsp baking powder and 1.5tsp salt can be used also)
2 tbsp cold butter (or ICBINB for less calories)
1/2 cup cold Crisco Shortening (or .25 cups shortening and .25 cups applesauce for healthier version)
1 cup low fat buttermilk
This was my Grandmotherís recipe. Obviously you can ditch the butter to cut calories but I suggest using I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. These can be made with whole wheat flour also but be sure and get bread-making whole wheat for best results. I use low-fat buttermilk. The shortening can be cut down by using some applesauce but I can tell the difference when I do that version. It is still good but missing something. The low calorie version only has about 40 calories a biscuit.
