3 Ingredient Biscuits
2 cups self-rising flour
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 to 1 cup full-fat buttermilk
Note: This recipe can be successfully doubled.
Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly grease baking pan.
Put flour into large mixing bowl.
Using a pastry cutter (or two forks), cut the shortening into the flour until the mixture looks like crumbs. Squeeze a handful of it into your hand. If it stays together, you are ready for the next step.
Add buttermilk to the flour/shortening mixture. Mix until the milk is worked in and turn dough onto a floured surface. Knead a few times, until dough is no longer sticky.
Roll out to about a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out biscuits with a 3-inch cutter and place on greased baking pan.
Bake at 450°F for approximately 10 minutes.
