Perfect Biscuits

The easiest and only biscuit recipe you'll ever need.

Prep
Cook
Serves 10people
Ingredients
2
cups self-rising flour
1/2
tsp salt
1/4
cup granulated sugar
1/4
cup vegetable shortening
2/3
cup heavy cream
1
cup buttermilk, well-shaken
1
cup all-purpose flour, for shaping biscuits (do NOT use self-rising)
2
tbsp unsalted butter, melted
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray an 8" round cake pan with cooking spray.
2.
In a medium bowl, combine self-rising flour, sugar and salt and whisk well. Add shortening and combine with a pastry cutter or fingers until there are no lumps larger than a pea. Stir in the heavy cream and buttermilk, make sure you don't overmix. Let sit for two to three minutes. Dough will be very wet looking.
3.
Put the all-purpose flour into a shallow bowl or plate and coat your hands with flour. Spoon 1/4 cup of the wet dough into the flour. Gently form the dough into a ball with your hands and place in the prepared cake pan. Repeat with remaining dough.
4.
Brush with melted butter and bake until set and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
