💚My Granny’s Old-Fashioned Biscuits👍

Ingredients:


  • 2 c self-rising flour (Martha White or White Lily for best results)
  • 1/4 c lard or shortening (about egg-sized and very cold)
  • 1 c very cold buttermilk (may need to adjust amount)
  • 3 Tbsp melted shortening or butter


Instructions:


1Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Heavily grease a large cast-iron skillet or biscuit pan and set aside. (I prefer the cast iron skillet).


2Put the flour into a large bowl and add lard/shortening.


3Cut into flour using the usual pastry method.


4Add buttermilk and mix with fork or hands.


5Mix into a light dough.


6Turn dough onto a floured board and knead a couple of times.


7Pat dough to flatten to about 1/2 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter, cut dough into biscuits.


8Place cut biscuits in the prepared pan.


9Pour melted shortening/butter over each biscuit.


10Bake for about 13 to 15 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan and place into a covered container and allow to steam for about 5 minutes. You may also brush melted butter over top prior to steaming (if desired).


11Serve hot with butter, apple butter, jellies, jams, honey, or anything else that you like.
