How to Make It

Step 1

Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain well, and set aside.

Step 2

Cut shortening into flour with a pastry blender until crumbly; add buttermilk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

Step 3

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 to 4 times.

Step 4

Pat or roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle sausage over dough, gently pressing into dough; cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheets.

Step 5

Bake at 450° for 8 to 10 minutes.

Step 6

NOTE: For testing purposes only, we used Smithfield ham sausage.
