Buttermilk Biscuits-The Duo Dishes

There are really great things about waking up in the morning on the weekend:  knowing it’s a Saturday or Sunday and you don’t have to go to work, staying in bed past 9:00 am because you can and smelling something baking.  Someone once said the best part of waking up was Folgers in your cup, but we think the best part of waking up is arising to the scent of someone cooking in the kitchen.  We’ve made biscuits before, but these are purely unadulterated.  Eat them plain or add butter, honey or jam.  They are most definitely a great way to usher in a good morning.

Short and to the point today!  We just want to share an easy biscuit recipe for your next lazy weekend morning.  Whoever you serve these to will love you for life.   Fast to make and so quickly eaten, you won’t even realize you’ve spent any time in the kitchen!

Buttermilk Biscuits – Approx. 10-12
1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup buttermilk
Flour for dusting

1. Combine flour, sugar and baking soda with a whisk.

2. Cut shortening into flour with a pastry blender until small, coarse crumbs develop.

3. Stir in buttermilk until sticky dough forms. Dump on a lightly floured surface and knead 3 or 4 times.

4. Roll out to about 1/2 inch and cut circles with a 2-inch cutter or a drinking glass.

5. Lay dough on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

  3. They look make-able to me! Though, what do you have biscuits with? I saw the previous comment, seems like it’s for sweet stuff. Any other ways?

  14. I love your addition of brown sugar to the biscuit recipe. There is nothing like a fresh biscuit. I like to think I’ve perfected my own biscuit recipe, but there are always things you can do with a biscuit.

  15. Good morning, indeed. Nothing make thing better than a warm fresh out of the oven biscuit. Slather on some jam or butter along with some tea of coffee and I’m good to go.

  32. Hmmm waking up to something being baked is the best way to wake up. Too bad I am the one who has to get up to bake, lol. Hmm I am in the mood for biscuits now.

  33. I love homemade biscuits – especially drizzled with a really good honey and smeared with real butter – this just made the list of things to make!

    Thanks!

  34. Always forget about biscuits in the morning. I like mine with bacon and egg in a sandwich or covered in gravy. So unhealthy and makes you want to run right back into bed and crash in a carb coma for the next couple of hours.
