Buttermilk biscuits made with vanilla, Splenda and lots of cheese. :)
Turn out on well floured board; knead lightly but well, adding more flour as needed to make dough that is easily handled. Roll to 1/2 inch thick and cut with a 2 inch cutter. This makes a lot of biscuits, more than you will use at one time. Place biscuits on greased baking sheets, brush biscuits with melted shortening and freeze. Remove amount needed to fill plastic bags and store in freezer.
When the urge for good biscuits comes, remove what you need, place in greased baking sheet, let thaw and bake in a 400 degree F (preheated) oven.

I am hoping some one can help me please. I saw a recipe a week or two ago and it had just two ingredients flour and buttermilk. My grandson wants to make whatever they are, but I am unable to find it anywhere. Please can you help us? I am sure it was for scones or biscuits, but that is all I can remember.

Go to Betty Crocker and then Rolled Milk Biscuits, all you use is 2 1/4 cups Bisquick and 2/3 cup milk. Mix together and put into oven. Very easy. I'm sure you have Bisquick in UK, if not check Betty Crocker for the name of product in UK. Hope this works, it's very easy and I make them all the time. Good luck.
