Melt in your Mouth Buttermilk Biscuits

 Hand down the very best biscuits I’ve ever made, ever!


2 c all purpose flour

2 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp shortening

1/8 tsp baking soda

1 c + 2 tablespoons buttermilk

1/2 c oil


1. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into mixing bowl

2. Add shortening and blend well

3. Add baking soda to all the buttermilk then blend into flour mixture. DO NOT OVER WORK DOUGH

4. Heavily flour surface and the top of the dough (it’s pretty sticky) and roll out 1/4 thick and cut with 2 inch biscuit cutter OR cut into squares. Dip biscuits in oil to cover all sides and place on oiled baking sheet immediately with all biscuits touching.

5. Bake at 500F for 8.5-10 minutes or until nicely brown. Serve with butter and jam.
