These biscuits are a must have for all of our family gatherings. Â This recipe came from my grandma on my dad’s side. Â She used to make them for us until she moved to AZ (lucky her) many, many years ago. Â Then my mom made them for a while, and now I make them. Â My mom always says “you’re bringing the biscuits, right?” Â before all the holidays. Â These are the biscuits she’s talking about.
You only need 5 ingredients:
- 2 Cups Flour
- 4 Teaspoons baking powder
- 6 Tablespoons crisco (I like the butter flavor, but you can use unflavored)
- 1 Teaspoon salt
- 1/2 to 2/3 Cups of Milk
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Â In a large bowl, stand mixer, or food processor, mix your dry ingredients. Â Then add the crisco, and 1/2 cup of milk. Â Mix until it is all combined, but don’t overmix, or your biscuits will not be flaky. Â If you need extra milk, add a little more milk. Â (Tip: Â If you add in too much milk, add a little flour until you have the right consistency).
Press out your dough and cut out your biscuits with biscuit cutters. Â If you don’t have biscuit cutters, the open end of a mug works great too! Â Place on ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes.
See how they fluff up? Â Â I split mine apart and spread butter on them. Â They will be flaky and delicious! Â Enjoy 🙂
Tip: Â These freeze very well! Â Just form your uncooked biscuits from the dough, and place in an airtight bag in the freezer for a couple of months. Â Just pop them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes at 425 degrees when you want them!
