Homemade Biscuit Recipe

The following recipe is what is called making biscuit’s from scratch – My Grandmother made them like this, but mother was bone idle and opted for the canned variety – that we all know taste, well not that fantastic.

Making biscuits from scratch is not hard at all – it takes us about 20 minutes from beginning to out of the oven and ready to eat. They taste so much better and you can have quality time with the kids making them – Why? Because there is a cookie cutter involved and it’s like working with Play-Doh!


2 ¼ cups of all-purpose flour (never really tried anything else)
3 teaspoons of baking powder
½-teaspoon salt
½ cup of shortening (Crisco)
1-cup milk (we use buttermilk)

Cooking Directions:

Preheat Oven to 450 F. degrees

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Using blender, cut shortening into flour until consistency of course meal. Pour in milk; stir with fork until mixture leaves sides of bowl and forms a soft moist dough, toss lightly until no longer stocky, Roll out to ½ inch thick, and cut with 2-inch floured cookie cutter. Place on un-greased cookie sheet. Bake biscuits in oven on middle or top rack at 450 degrees for 8-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Serve hot with butter and favorite jams and jelly or honey. Makes about 12-15 biscuits.
