♥ Mama’s Biscuits ♥

Mama’s biscuits:

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees

2 C flour

2 t baking powder

½ t baking soda

½ t salt

Mix the dry ingredients, then add enough buttermilk to make a sticky dough—about 1 cup.

Flour a pastry board, dump the dough onto it and knead lightly until just manageable.

Pat out dough (you can use a rolling-pin, but Mama never did) until it’s about an inch thick.

Cut out biscuits.

Put enough oil in your biscuit pan to cover the bottom well. Heat the oil in the oven until very warm. One at a time, turn biscuits over in hot oil and scoot to the edge until all the biscuits are in the pan. Bake at 450 for twenty or twenty-five minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.

  2. Susan, I can’t wait to try these! They sound amazing and *bonus* frugal, too!

    • They aren’t the norm when it comes to biscuits, but they’re the only truly good ones to me. Maybe because I was raised on them. (And I have the weight to show it.)

  3. Thank you Susan I will try these this Sunday for our family dinner…Peace Jaz

  4. Took me almost 2 years to get around to making these, but they turned out wonderful. Thanks
