1/10 Photos of Carolina Buttermilk Biscuits (And/Or Southern Shortcake)
There is nothing better then the smell of Southern biscuits baking in the kitchen. When they hit the table piping hot they are sure to disappear as quickly as they appeared. This recipe makes an excellent base for Strawberry Shortcake! Just increase the sugar to 2 Tablespoons (optional) and whip up some cream with a dash of vanilla extract and slice some fresh strawberries.... and Enjoy!

- 1Preheat the oven to 500°. In a bowl, sift the flour with the baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt. Work the butter or lard in until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the buttermilk and stir until the dough forms a ball.
- 2Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and fold it over onto itself 10 times. Pat the dough out to an 8-inch square. Using a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, stamp out 12 biscuits; reroll the scraps and stamp out more biscuits.
- 3Arrange the biscuits on a baking sheet and bake in the center of the oven for 8 minutes, or until golden. Serve hot.
