Crazy Biscuits

You can make these tasty biscuits from scratch.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup milk

Instructions

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl.  Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add milk and stir until dough follows fork around bowl.   Knead slightly.  Pat out on lightly floured board and cut.  Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 450 degrees for 10 to 20 minutes, or until brown.

To reheat leftover biscuits, wrap in foil and heat in a 300 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Open foil half through heating if you want them crisp.

    My response is the same as Ann’s. They tasted great but did not rise at all, and I followed directions exactly.

    The flavor of these were great… but they were FLAT FLAT FLAT… I’m sure I did something wrong on my end… but not sure what.

    These turned out great just like my grams biscuits, I did use buttermilk tho (no baking soda)
    thanx for sharing your grams recipe. I didn’t know mines she would mix it right in the flour bin :)
    These even looked pretty!

    I’m crazy for these biscuits. Thank you for sharing your Grandmother’s wonderful biscuit recipe. I’ve always been able to make bread like nobody’s business, but my home made biscuits could have been used for hockey pucks. Bisquick to the rescue. This is the FIRST time that a scratch recipe has worked for me. These were flaky, picture perfect and delicious. Thank you…thank you and thank you.

    There is no baking soda in this recipe.

    I just made these tonite, they looked beautiful but I could taste the salty baking soda flavor in them, I’m going to try, perhaps using less Baking soda next time, but they were flaky and picture perfect.

    I am guessing you meant baking powder ~Stephanie

      you only use baking soda if you are using buttermilk. Otherwise it is baking powder just as the recipe for the biscuits states.
