Home Made Biscuits
My brother-in-law made the best biscuits I have ever eaten a few weeks back on a visit to see my sis and daughters. I ask him for his recipe and basically it turns out to be the exact recipe that's listed on the back of his flour that he swears by. For those of you that have access to Hudson Cream self-rising flour it is listed on the back of the bag. The only additions he makes is the addition of salt and Crisco shortening. He also uses cooking oil to grease the pan even though the mix has Crisco in it.
Here's the long and short of it for anyone wanting to try.

2 cups of Hudson Cream self-rising flour sifted into a large bowl
1/3 cup of Crisco
3/4 cups of buttermilk (he doesn't measure but it could take more)
1/2 tsp salt

Blend Crisco into flour thoroughly first...add the buttermilk and form dough into a large ball. Place dough on a lightly floured cutting board and knead four to five times folding it over itself. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick and let set for a few minutes. Using a biscuit cutter cut and place into the greased pan (does not have to be pre-heated) and flip the biscuit so both sides are oiled. He places the biscuits touching each other which he says makes them more moist. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees for apx. 15 minutes.
These are great with gravy or butter and jelly....oh heck....just put what you like best on a biscuit and enjoy.

Re: Home Made Biscuits
Those do sound good, I have not tried homemade biscuits yet but recently as a few days ago was looking up biscuit recipes on line.

I donít usually keep buttermilk on hand and usually cheat and just sour the whole milk of what I need.
