Mom’s Homemade Biscuits

Leave a comment

Stop 2: Table Rock, South Carolina to see my parents! My mom made us some incredible homemade biscuits this morning! The trick to these biscuits, unlike many other recipes, is to handle them a lot! They were fluffy and perfect.

The recipe:

  • 21/4 c self rising flour
  • 1/4 c cold butter
  • 1/4 c butter flavored Crisco
  • 1-11/4 c buttermilk (you can sub half-and-half for some of the buttermilk if you like)
  • A little cracked pepper

Cut butter into large chunks and work into flour with the Crisco using a pastry blender. Add buttermilk and mix in. Take dough out onto a floured surface and flatten with your hands. Fold into thirds. Flatten and fold into thirds about 6 times. Use a biscuit cutter to form biscuits (push down with the cutter and don’t twist!) Using a pastry brush, brush on a little butter on top of biscuits and top off with black pepper.

Bake at 450 for 15-18 minutes!
