Buttermilk Biscuits

Our children are cereal addicts.

It's true.
You could offer them cookies covered in candy for breakfast...and they would still prefer cereal and milk.

So, the other morning when my spicy husband made buttermilk biscuits for breakfast, it was a risk. Big risk.

Guess what....the kids LOVED them.
In fact...our daughter asked me 3 times the following week if I "knew how to make daddy's biscuits" for breakfast.

This, my friends, means we have a winner.
We have made them 3 times in the past 2 weeks.
They are best warm and served with butter and homemade jam or some honey.


Buttermilk Biscuits
By: Better Crocker
2 cups flour
1 Tbl Sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk

1. Heat oven to 450 deg.
2. mix dry ingredients, cut in shortening with pastry blender or criss-crossing 2 knives until it looks like fine crumbs. Stir in buttermilk until dough leaves sides of bowl (dough will be soft and sticky).
3. Knead dough lightly 10 times on lightly floured surface, roll to 1/2 inch thick, cut with round cutter. Place on cookie sheet, touching if you like soft sides 1 inch apart if you like crusty sides (I like them soft).
4. Bake 10 to 12 min. or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet immediately.
