These biscuits are one of my favorite things to eat. My aunt has made them for as long as I can remember and nothing beats these things fresh out of the oven with some butter and honey. Mmm! Yesterday afternoon I went over and she taught me how to make them for myself! And now you can make them too…
Simple Biscuits (Makes 6 biscuits)
1 and 3/4 cup flour
2 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450°. Mix together dry ingredients. Cut shortening into dry mixture until it looks like fine crumbs. Slowly stir in the milk until everything is combined. Separate dough mixture into six even pieces, round and flatten to desired shape and place on ungreased pan. Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Now I’m wishing there were leftovers for lunch today!
