I have a weird confession to make, I really don't like biscuits. Add that on to the weird fact that I don't like pie crust! Not sure what it is about them, just never cared for them, no matter the recipe. It's something I eat when I really, really want something that goes with it, like biscuits and gravy, bacon, egg & cheese biscuit. They are just the outer package! Anyway, my big kids just love them (for the bacon,egg & cheese)! Since I make 99.9% of everything from scratch, I make up a batch and just freeze the rest. Bake in the oven and by the time the eggs and bacon are done, so are the frozen biscuits!
-4 cups self-rising flour
-1 Tbls baking powder
-1 Tbls sugar (I usually leave this out, so it's optional)
-3/4 cup Crisco
-2 1/4 cups buttermilk
- Mix all ingredients. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead a few times. Roll out 3/4 to 1 inch thick. Be careful not to overwork the dough, or biscuits will be tough. Bake at 400 degrees around 13-15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.
