Happy Buttermilk Biscuit Day

It’s Buttermilk Biscuit Day!

Baked Buttermilk Biscuits

Yes, it is gets it’s own food holiday on the food holiday calendar, deservedly so!

What are they, you say? Try this definition of Biscuits.

I usually only make these for special occasions for others, as I know better than to make a random batch. I could probably eat the lot of them as they are just so buttery fluffy good.

So far the recipe I have found that is the easiest and tastes pretty damn yummy goes something like this…

Ingredients:

  • 2  cups self-rising flour
  • 1/4  cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. Place flour in large bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk; stir with fork until soft dough forms and mixture begins to pull away from sides of bowl.
  2. On lightly floured surface, knead dough just until smooth. Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with floured 2-inch round cutter. Place biscuits cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet.
  4. Serve warm
