What would Southern cooking be without biscuits? Did you know that these are called soda biscuits 'cause the baking soda is what makes 'em so Southern-special?
What You'll Need:
- 2 1/2
cups all-purpose flour, divided
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
- 1 cup buttermilk
What To Do:
- Preheat oven to 450 degree F. Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, the baking soda, baking powder, and salt; mix well. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut shortening into flour mixture until crumbly. Add buttermilk and stir just until blended.
- Spread remaining 1/2 cup flour on a flat surface and gently knead dough with your hands. Do not overwork dough. Spread dough out and, with a 3-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, cut dough into biscuits.
- Place on prepared baking sheet and bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until light golden. Serve warm, or remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 1 dozen biscuits.
We recommend keeping a container of powdered buttermilk on hand in the pantry. All you need to do is add water to the powder whenever a recipe calls for buttermilk.
