Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add buttermilk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing dough for four to six strokes or just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough until 3/4-inch thick. Cut dough with a floured 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cutting straight down with no twisting. Reroll dough cuttings as necessary.

  • Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet or place in an 11x7x2-inch baking pan with the biscuit edges just touching. Bake in a 475 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove biscuits from baking sheet or pan; serve warm with Sausage Gravy. Makes 10 biscuits.


To make sour milk, place 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measure. Add enough milk to equal 1 cup total. Let stand for 5 minutes before using.
