  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk or full fat milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening


  • Add the dry ingredients to a sifter or mesh strainer. Sift them together over top of/into a large bowl.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and add in wet ingredients. Use your hands to knead the dough, cutting them in as you go.
  • If the dough isn't coming together just yet, add a bit more milk, just until the dough has come together and formed.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and turn the formed dough out onto it. Knead the dough 6-8 good times.
  • Roll the dough out until it's 1/2" thick all the way around.
  • Use a glass or a biscuit cutter to cut 8 biscuits out of the dough. Form the remaining scraps into two biscuits. Transfer the biscuits to a baking sheet.
  • Bake the biscuits at 425 degrees for 10-13 minutes.
  • Serve warm with drizzle with honey or topped with a pat of butter.
