How to Make It

Step 1

Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt; stir well. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually add buttermilk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

Step 2

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 10 to 12 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Fast, easy, uses pantry staples, great way to use up leftover buttermilk.  Reliably fluffy and tender.  My go-to recipe.

quick and easy biscuits

These biscuits are pretty good for a quick and easy recipe.  I did have to add up 1/2 cup of additional flour as the dough was really wet and sticky. I just worked a little in at a time during the kneading until it got to a good consistency- don't add too much and don't knead too long.  Biscuits came out light and fluffy with a slight crunch to the top. Very good with our sausage gravy. Super quick to make. I also didn't have buttermilk so I used sour milk(whole milk with some vinegar) good in a pinch but most likely would have been better with buttermilk.
