- 2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons white granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons shortening (I used Crisco)
1 cup buttermilk
- Whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk and stir together with a spoon. Turn out onto a generously floured surface. DO NOT KNEAD. Roll or pat out your dough to about 1 inch thick. Cut out biscuits. I used a 3 inch biscuit cutter so they would be a bigger biscuit to use for breakfast sandwiches. Spray a baking sheet lightly with cooking spray. Place biscuits touching on baking sheet. Brush tops with additional buttermilk. Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes until brown on top. Makes 10 biscuits. Enjoy!
