Woke up this morning and its raining outside. Thank goodness it isn't raining and cold just wet out. Since I will be inside this morning I decided a big breakfast would hit the spot. Biscuits are quick and easy to make. Here are the ingredients to make buttermilk biscuits. This recipe is on back of the White Lilly flour bag.
2 cups White Lilly All-Purpose Flour (of course any all purpose flour will work)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 Crico Shortening --chilled
2/3 to 3/4 cup of buttermilk
I add a pinch of baking soda which is not listed in the white lilly recipe
heat oven to 500 degrees
I grease my skillet lightly with the crisco shortening
Combine the flour, baking powder,baking soda and salt and stir together. Cut in shortening with a fork until it looks like little peas
Blend in enough buttermilk with fork until dough leaves side of bowl
In only 8 to 10 minutes the biscuits are done. A little pat of butter and some homemade strawberry jelly and it is a perfect part of breakfast.
My biscuits may not look as beautiful as some but they are flaky and tender. Just how I love my biscuits
