Dale Goodman's Note:
I normally don't use a recipe for my biscuits,but I've learned from experience that the recipe on the bag of flour does not make the best biscuits. Here is an approximate recipe.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Mix flour and shortening in a mixing bowl.
- 2Using a pastry blender or a fork, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- 3Add buttermilk and stir.
- 4Start out with a little and add more as you need.
- 5The dough should be wet and gummy.
- 6THEN, sprinkle a little flour on top and work it in with your hands.
- 7Then flip the dough and do the same on the other side. Continue to do this until the dough isn't sticky on the outside, it doesn't take much.
- 8Then flour your hands and take a small amount of dough and roll it into a ball, then place on a greased cookie sheet or baking pan and flatten slightly into a biscuit shape. When you've finished with the dough, b ake the biscuits in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes, just until they start to brown, then take them out and preheat the broiler, and then stick the biscuits back in until they are brown.
- 9You can brush them with melted butter if you like. This may take some practice, but after a few times you will know what the consistency of the dough should feel like. I hope this works for you.
