- 4 cups self-rising flour, plus more for rolling out
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 3/4 cup vegetable shortening
- 2 cups buttermilk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and sugar; mix well. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut shortening into flour mixture until crumbly. Add buttermilk and stir just until a soft dough forms.
Lightly flour a flat surface; using a rolling pin, roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, cut into round biscuits and place on prepared baking sheet.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes, or until light golden. Serve warm, or remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Note : Serve these with a little butter for the perfect addition to breakfast…or any meal, for that matter!
