Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits
From: swampbear

It might take a few practice rounds to get these just right, but once you do, they'll be golden brown on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO goooooooooooooooood!

2 cups of self-rising flour
One-half cup of shortening
One-half tablespoon of salt
1 cup of buttermilk

Combine the flour and salt. Cut in the shortening. Add the buttermilk and stir until well blended.

Ok, here's two methods to making the biscuits.

1. Roll out the dough to one-half inch thickness on a floured surface and cut with a biscuit cutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.

2. Flour your hands really good, pinch off a bit of dough and roll into a ball. Flatten with your hand and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. This is the most fun way.

Bake at 450 degrees 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned.
