Yummy! I used a little wheat flour and I really liked the texture.
This is what it should look like after you cut in the shortening
After you add buttermilk and stir it should look like this. At this point you can knead it 5-10 times until it comes together in a soft ball of dough
Lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough
Looks like this and you are ready to cut!
I used a cup and dipped the rim in flour before hand
We had eggs and bacon with ours
Butter and apricot jelly and you are all set.
2 1/2 cups flour (I used 1/2 cup wheat flour but know they won't rise as high if you do that)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. quick rising yeast plus 1/4 cup warm water to dissolve the yeast in)
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup milk mixed with 1 Tbsp vinegar)
1/2 cup shortening
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Mix dry ingredients. Cut in shortening (I like to use a pastry cutter). It should look like little pea sized clumps of shortening mixed with the dry stuff. Stir in buttermilk and yeast mixture. Stir until just combined, nou may need to add more flour at this point. You just want it to come together in a soft dough. Knead 5-10 times and form a ball. Flatten it out until it is about 1/2 inch thick and cut your biscuits. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes (on parchment for easy removal).
Enjoy. I know there are not a lot of tips/details, but you can find easy tips and how-to's online. I watched a video a while back to learn how to handle biscuit dough, you do not want to over-work it!
P.S. These are really good reheated on a skillet with a little butter. If you want a sweet treat add biscoff to them:)
