A great time saver! Better than the canned ones!


Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Depends on what size you make them



  • 6 cups flour
  • 3 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 cups buttermilk or sour milk
  • Sour Milk
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1 cup milk


  1. To Make Sour Milk: Mix the ingredients and let stand for a couple of minutes.
  2. To Make Biscuits: In mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add shortening, cut in with a fork or pastry cutter until it looks like little peas. Be careful not to overmix.
  4. Stir in buttermilk or sour milk until the dough is soft.
  5. Knead dough 10 to 12 times.
  6. On a floured surface roll the dough 1 inch thick.
  7. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter. I use a glass because I haven't had a cutter in years! I found that the sippy cups for toddlers are great, they don't slip! Use whatever size you want.
  8. To Freeze: Place the biscuit dough on a large pan lined with waxed paper and freeze overnight. In the morning, put them in a large freezer bag and store in freezer until ready to cook.

  10. To Bake: Preheat oven to 450 degree. Take out as many biscuits as you want to bake and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  11. Bake 10 minutes until golden brown.

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.

Easy scones:
4ozs. margarine
16ozs. Self-raising flour 2 level tsp. Baking Powder sieved together
2ozs. Caster Sugar
14 Tbsp. Sour milk.

Grease a baking sheet. Place all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough.
Turn out onto a lightly floured board and roll out to approx. half-inch thick.


Cut into rounds. Re-knead pieces and cut again.
Brush top with beaten egg and bake in pre-heated oven 200 degrees for about 15-20 mins. depending on your oven. Mine is fan assisted.

You can ring the changes to this mixture by using raisins,
also using dates and walnuts, or topping with cheese.
