Mmm… Ok, okay what’s better than biscuits? I mean they are melt in your mouth savory buttery goodness, and I personally can’t get enough of them! I love them with jam, or just with butter, or honey. Or, dare I say I love to dip them in gravy. Ooooh, yes brown gravy and biscuits so good. But, even better, I’m going to be posting our sausage gravy recipe soon and these biscuits pair perfectly for an amazing breakfast, so excited!
Anyways, biscuits are one of my all time favorite sides, and although I love making easy drop biscuits -like our Cheddar and Chive Biscuits, you just can’t beat a good old fashioned biscuit -rolled and cut and layered.
Here’s a classic buttermilk biscuit recipe from our aunt Nellie. Tried and true for generations!
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ cup shortening
- ¾ cup buttermilk
- In a bowl combine the flour baking powerder and soda. Cut in a unreadable until it resembles coarse unreadable unreadable in buttermilik. Knead gently roll out to ½”" thick. Cut with a cookier cutter and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-10 minutes. Unreadable garden lawn. <-- What on earth? Can't read that.
