Southern Style Biscuits


Number of Servings: 12 biscuits
Prep Time: 30 min Skill Level: Average


2 cups flour + flour for rolling board
4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoon shortening*
2/3 to 3/4 cups milk


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together.

3. With a knife or a pastry blender, blend the shortening into the flour mixture until dough looks like small balls.

4. Slowly add milk while you stir the dough with a fork until the balls have softened into a dough that you can roll. Stop adding milk before the mixture gets sloppy. It needs to be firm enough to roll.

5. On a lightly floured board, roll out the dough until it is about a 1/2 inch thick.

6. If you have a biscuit cutter, cut out 12 circles with it. If not, flour the rim of a glass and use it to cut the biscuits.

7. Place the biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.

8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the outside is golden.

9. Serve with butter or bacon.

Helpful Hints:

* Real Southern Style Biscuits use lard or Crisco as the shortening. For those who are concerned about fats in the diet, margarine or a lite butter can be substituted.
