The Best Biscuits

Submitted By: Teresa Vinson


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cup whole buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp. Crisco
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter


Mix flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut Crisco in small pieces and use a pastry
cutter or two knives to mix the Crisco into the flour mixture until it forms small pieces. Add buttermilk and mix with a fork until dough forms a ball. Place dough on a piece of floured parchment paper and pat to ¾-inch disc. Cut out with a biscuit cutter and place in a skillet that has been greased with Crisco. Brush the melted butter on top of the biscuits and bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
