Ozark Gardens Buttermilk Biscuits


  • 2 cups melted shortening
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 gallon buttermilk
  • 6 cups flour
  • 5 heaping Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 heaping Tbsp. salt
  • Ad

  • 1 rounded tsp. baking soda


In large mixing bowl, mix shortening and flour to a smooth gravy like consistency. Add buttermilk, stirring well. Sift together dry ingredients and add to wet ingredients. Mix well.

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.

How long do you bake the biscuits?

2 cups melted shortening? Are you sure? Could this possibly be a typo? This sounds like an extraordinary amount of shortening for a batch of biscuits using 9 cups of flour.


Would so appreciate some feedback on this recipe. This equals slightly less than 1/4 cup shortening per each cup of flour. May be completely correct. Just caught my attention and would love confirmation.
