I like big biscuits and I can not lie………
Especially on Sunday mornings with deer sausage and homemade butter. ‘Cause when you have a big biscuit you can say ‘I only had one” and not feel bad about it!
Mama’s Buttermilk Biscuits
4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450. Sift together dry ingredients, cut in the shortening with a fork until crumbly. Add the eggs and buttermilk. Stir together until well mixed, turn out onto a floured surface and knead 8-10 times, just until no longer sticky. Don’t overwork. Pat out into a rectangle about 1 1/2 inches thick and cut into squares.
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and done in the middle.
Serve hot with butter, honey, jam, whatever you wish!
This recipe can also be cut in half to yield 4 huge biscuits or 6 normal size biscuits. 🙂
