Buttermilk Biscuits

Submitted by: PROBABLYKK


Number of Servings: 7


    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 cup vegetable shortening, chilled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    3/4 cup buttermilk


In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients together with a fork. Cut in the shortening using a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add buttermilk. Quickly fold dry ingredients into buttermilk with your hands until a sticky dough forms.

Turn dough out onto floured surface. Gently fold the dough over itself 3 or 4 times to create layers. Roll dough out to 3/4-inch thick. Cut with a 3-inch biscuit cutter. Transfer dough rounds to a sheet pan. Gather scraps and repeat. Make a dimple in the center to help the top rise evenly. Brush with butter. Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated 400 degree oven until golden brown.

Serving Size: makes 6-8 biscuits
