Down Home Biscuits

Yield about 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups buttermilk

How to Make It

  1. Sift dry ingredients; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle buttermilk evenly over flour mixture, stirring until ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 to 5 times.

  2. Pat dough out to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
