2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk (or 2% milk)

Mix dry ingredients, cut in shortening and mix. Add milk. Flour surface and knead dough, adding flour if dough is too sticky. Roll out dough to about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Cut out with biscuit cutter or small cup. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes until lightly browned.

Yield: 8 biscuits (depending on how thin you roll them out).

Best served warm with butter and jelly or honey. OR topped with gravy! Yummmmm!!


  1. I think I am going to give these a try. We love homemade biscuits, but just haven't found a good recipe! Thanks!

  2. These biscuits are great! Now I always double the recipe when I make them because they save and heat up nicely! A definite bonus! Cook and clean up once, enjoy twice!
