Country Buttermilk Biscuits


Ever wonder how to make those buttery Country Buttermilk Biscuits? Well here is a simple recipe I put together while speaking to one of my more reliable sources: my grandmother. We were talking about her latest rendition of fried green tomatoes and the many uses of buttermilk just happened to come up. Within minutes I was jotting down some ideas and by the end I had a southern staple that I definitely wanted to share. Enjoy!!

Servings: 12 Biscuits
Prep Time: ~15 min

3 Cups Flour, All-Purpose
3 Tbsp Lard (or Crisco Shortening)
6 Tbsp Butter, unsalted
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Salt
1 1/3 to 1 1/2 Cup Buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Combine the flour, lard, salt, baking soda, and butter until crumbs form. Pour in enough buttermilk until a wet dough forms. Remove the dough to a lightly floured surface. Stretch. Fold. Repeat. Lightly pat until biscuit dough reaches desired thickness (for me, just shy of 1" in height). Be careful to not press, knead, or roll. Use the mouth of a glass to cut a circular shape and place the biscuits on a non-greased pan about 1" apart. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-14 minutes, or until the tops are light gold.
