Incredibly light and fluffy, Old Fashioned Buttermilk Biscuits will simply melt in your mouth, just like Grandma's biscuits always did!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups self-rising flour, plus more for rolling out
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 cups buttermilk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and sugar; mix well. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut shortening into flour mixture until crumbly. Add buttermilk and stir just until a soft dough forms.
     
  3. Lightly flour a flat surface; using a rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, cut into round biscuits and place on prepared baking sheet.
     
  4. Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until light golden. Serve warm, or remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Note

Serve these with a little butter for the perfect addition to breakfast...or any meal, for that matter!
