After an overwhelming number of requests on Facebook, I wanted to share my great-grandmother Abby’s recipe for homemade buttermilk biscuits. I hope you enjoy! Please share any feedback or suggestions in the comments below.
4 cups self-rising flour, sifted, plus more if needed
2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup lard, shortening
1/4 cup butter
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Sift the flour and salt together into a bowl. Add the lard/butter and cut together. Use a fork to stir in the buttermilk. Gently knead the dough a few times, adding more flour as needed.
Roll out the dough and cut out biscuits with a small round cutter or glass. Place on baking sheets and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Butter after removing from the oven.
