Description

These biscuits have been in my family for years, and now I am sharing them along with a how-to video on my website with big mama herself!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Self-Rising Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons (Heaping) Shortening
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • Melted Butter For Tops

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
2. Add flour and sugar to a medium-sized bowl and mix to combine. Create a well in the center of the flour mixture.
3. Add shortening to the middle of the flour and begin cutting into the flour.
4. Next, add buttermilk to the biscuit mixture and begin working together with your hands to bring together. There will be some flour left so don’t worry about this.
5. Turn the biscuit mixture onto a kitchen board. Work together with your hands on the board until a dough consistency forms and add flour if needed.
6. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out the dough to preferred thickness of 1/3-2/3 inch. I prefer about 1/2 inch thickness.
7. Cut biscuit dough into circles using a round cutter or back of a can.
8. Place cut biscuits onto greased baking pan.
9. Bake biscuits for about 12 minutes or until they have risen and are nice and brown. Watch the oven and take them out once they are browned to your liking.
10. Brush melted butter on the tops of biscuits and serve warm.

Jocelyn, that video is just too precious. Did Big Mama enjoy being on camera? I hope everyone in your family gets a copy so this time together won’t be lost. Biscuits look great! My Grandmother taught me how to bake biscuits as well. Thanks so much for sharing.
