3 cups self rising flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/4 cup buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients. Cut in shortening. Stir in buttermilk. Knead a few times, roll or pat out on a board and cut with a biscuit cutter. Bake in 450 degrees F oven for 12 minutes (or until golden). Brush with butter.

These are so good, I made them yesterday, and then sausage gravy to top them with, oh my out of this world good, just such a wonderful biscuit, my fav now.


  1. Hi Barbara, I just found your blog and all I can say is Yummy. Everything looks so good. It also looks like you started blogging about the same time I did. I'm just an old dog trying to learn a new trick or two. You may have noticed that I am your newest follower, and I would like to invite you to follow my blog too. My husband and I are both born again Christians and it's nice that not only does your food look delicious but you're also a sister in the Lord. My husband Steve just started a blog a few weeks ago. He does woodworking and loves to cook, especially for crowds. I'm going to sent you a link to his blog. Please go visit. I know that if you choose to follow him, that he will also follow yours. He'll probably even start copies down some of your tasty recipes. Have a great day, God bless you and we hope to get a visit. Connie :) Here is his address: http://woodworkinandgoodeats.blogspot.com
