    Buttermilk Biscuits

    Source of Recipe

    From Lee Bailey's "Long Weekends"

    List of Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 Tbsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp salt
    • tsp baking soda
    • cup shortening (butter, margarine, or a combination)
    • 1 cup buttermilk


    1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Coat two glass baking dishes with vegetable spray and put them in to heat.

    2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or two knives. Mix in the buttermilk. Place on a floured surface and pat down to inch thick. Cut into 12 biscuits, gathering up the scraps and patting them down again to make the final cuts.

    3. Remove heated dishes from the oven. Put biscuits in, touching one another, and bake until golden, about 12 to 14 minutes.

      Makes 12 biscuits.
