This is one of my very first recipes I posted here on A Bountiful Kitchen back in 2008! Can you believe that? I just love a good homemade biscuit. Can’t get enough of them. So comforting and tons of different ways to eat them!
If you have never made homemade biscuits, PLEASE do me a favor and try this recipe. I swear you will never go back to store bought biscuits again. You will be surprised how fast and easy these are to whip up for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a quick afternoon snack!
I love all the flaky layers of a biscuit. Perfect for spreading a little (or a lot of) butter or jam onto. These are also great with Biscuits and Sausage Gravy– another TASTY recipe to try! I really hope you give this recipe a try and become converted to the deliciousness that is homemade biscuits.
- 2 Cups Flour
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 5 Tablespoons Crisco I like butter flavor best
- 1 Cup Buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Sift all dry ingredients into bowl. Actually, I never sift, but that’s what the original recipe says.
Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk all at once. Stir until dough follows fork around bowl.
Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Pat out to about 3/4 to 1″ thick. Cut out into circles with either a glass or biscuit cutter.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet or baking pan for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
