Joe’s Buttermilk Biscuits

I am always on the search for a good Buttermilk Biscuit recipe. Nothing beats a fresh warm biscuit with a meal.

For breakfast time, make yourself an egg, bacon and cheese biscuit when you are on the run. Or try pouring some Sausage Gravy or Cream Chipped Beef over top of a few biscuits.

These are also great at a picnic with fried or fresh barbecue chicken hot off the grill. Or make a great bread portion of the meal.

I use a 3-1/2″ diameter Ateco biscuit cutter.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF / 220ºC.
  2. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk lightly to airate. Add shortening and cut in until it resembles coarse meal.
  3. Slowly add the milk and continue stirring until a dough forms. You only want to lightly mix and not to work the dough.
  4. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead 10-15 times. Pat out 1-inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter dipped in flour, cut biscuit. Dip the biscuit cutter in flour for each cut you make. Transfer the biscuits to a ungreased sheet pan.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes in a 425ºF / 220ºC preheated oven until edges begin to brown slightly. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Note 1 - Butter flavored Crisco® - if you do not have that use solid vegetable shortening.

Note 2 - If you do not have buttermilk, make you own by adding 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar to a cup of milk and allowing it to sit 5-10 minutes to thicken up.

Serving Suggestions - plain with some butter and jam.  These also make great egg, cheese and meat biscuits for those days when you are on the run.
