Excellent Buttermilk Biscuits recipe!

Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups self-rising flour
dash of salt
½ teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons shortening
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup sweet milk
1 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons melted butter

  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
  2. Sift flour, salt, and sugar together into a mixing bowl.
  3. Cut in shortening until mixture is coarse.
  4. Add buttermilk, milk, water, and 1 tablespoon of the butter. Mix lightly until combined, but do not overmix. Pour mixture out onto a floured surface.
  5. Knead dough two or three times. (If biscuits are to be used for sandwiches, such as ham biscuits or other breakfast sandwiches, knead them a few extra times.)
  6. With floured hands, pat out the dough to approximately ½-inch thickness.
  7. Using a floured biscuit cutter or standard size can, cut out biscuits. Do not twist the cutter when doing this; press straight down. (Dough scraps can be re-kneaded and cut, but biscuits from this cutting will be tougher, more suitable for sandwiches.)
  8. Place biscuits on a lightly greased baking pan.
  9. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
  10. Remove biscuits from oven and brush them with the remaining butter.
  11. Serve immediately.
