They’re fast, easy to make and pair well with soup and stew. You can also put a wonderful jelly on top and serve them with eggs. Or, for a snack just dab a little homemade butter, honey and enjoy.
Before you can enjoy them you need to make them, so let’s get started.
Kitchen items needed:
- Cookie sheet (the size depends on the batch).
- Wooden spoon
- Large Bowl
- A pastry cutter or knives
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
Ingredients needed for a single batch:
- Flour, 2 cups
- Buttermilk, 3/4 cup
- Baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon
- Baking powder, 2 teaspoons
- Sugar, 1 Tablespoon
- Salt , 1 teaspoon
- Lard, 1/2 cup
With your bowl ready, measure your flour and dump it in.
Add your salt.
Now your baking powder.
Add baking soda.
Add your sugar and then mix all of the ingredients.
Cut in lard/shortening with a pastry cutter or knives until you have little pea size or smaller chunks.
Measure and pour in your buttermilk.
Mix the batter with a wooden spoon until you have a sticky consistency.
Pull your pan out and evenly distribute the dough. Do NOT spray the pan.
Preheat your oven to 450 F.
When the oven is ready, place your pan of biscuits in and set the timer for 15 minutes. You may have to bake them a little longer depending on what size batch you’re making. The top should have a slight golden color when they are finished.
After the timer goes off, make sure your biscuits are done and take them out of the oven. Let cool a bit and serve.
That’s all there is to it folks! You now have an easy, moist, baking powder biscuit recipe.
