Homemade Biscuits!


Homemade Biscuits


2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco + 2 Tbs butter flavored Crisco divided
1 cup milk

Oven at 450 (could be 425 but up to you). Grease your cookie sheet with the 2 Tbs butter flavored Crisco  Mix the dry ingredients together, cut in the rest of the Crisco  then add the milk, mixing gently until just blended. Put approximately 1 cup of flour on your counter (extra to listed above) and scrape your batter onto it. 

Sprinkle approximately 1 more handful of flour on top of it and FOLD the dough over in halves NO MORE than ten times. This will ensure your biscuits are light and flaky. Do not over kneed. Roll the dough to 1/2 or 5/8 in thick and cut with a floured glass, cookie or biscuit cutter. Place dough circles onto your greased cookie sheet then into the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. 

Serve immediately.

Makes approximately 12 2 1/2" biscuits.

Note: I usually double this recipe, use a larger glass to cut the biscuits then I fill them with ham or sausage and cheese and then put them into individual freezer bags for the freezer. Nuke them in the microwave about 1 minute and you are good to go!
