Homemade Biscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar, optional
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk, use between 2/3 to 3/4 cup milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Add flour to a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, if using.
Mix dry ingredients together with a fork.

Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or use two table knives. The shortening should look like peas when cut into flour mixture. Do not totally blend shortening into the flour. Add milk. Use just enough milk to make a soft dough.

Stir mixture with a fork until a soft dough forms, on floured surface knead dough gently about 10 times.

Pat out dough about 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick. Cut out biscuits using a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Do not twist biscuit cutter when cutting out the biscuits. Place biscuits onto prepared baking sheet.

Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve hot with butter, honey, jam, syrup or gravy.
