How to make Buttermilk Biscuits

OK Tyler,

Here is how to make buttermilk biscuits. Just be careful and don’t eat too many. They have absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever. Although they do taste good once in a while.

Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups self rising flour

4 tablespoons butter, margarine or Crisco shortening

3/4 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon salt

Pre-heat the oven to 450°F

Measure the flour into a large bowl.

Cut the butter into the flour using a fork, two knives or a pastry cutter, until the mixture resembles very coarse cornmeal.

Make a well in the center of the flour, pour the buttermilk in and fold to make a sticky mass.

Don’t knead the dough like you would bread. If you do, you will have a tough biscuit. Just bring the mass together.

Put the dough on a well floured board and pat to about 3/4 inch thick. Using a sharp edge cutter, cut straight down.

It is important not to twist. Twisting will not allow the biscuit to rise correctly.

Place the biscuits on a baking sheet with the sides nearly touching.

Bake in the hot oven for 10 minutes. The biscuits are done when they are golden brown.

Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter.
