Yum! These 3-Ingredient Biscuits Taste Just Like Grandma’s

Yes, it’s fun to try out exciting new recipes, but sometimes what you need is some old-fashioned home cooking. And is there really any better comfort food than a hot-out-of-the-oven buttery biscuit? We think not. Here, an easy, three-ingredient recipe for perfect, golden-brown biscuits, just like Grandma used to make.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • 4 cups self-rising flour
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • ½ cup shortening, melted
  • a sifter
  • a round cookie cutter

STEP 1

Preheat the oven to 500°F. While it warms, sift the flour into a large bowl.

STEP 2

Make a well in the center of the flour with your fist. Pour the buttermilk and melted shortening into the middle of the well.

STEP 3

Stir the ingredients together with a fork until thoroughly combined.

STEP 4

Sprinkle some extra flour onto the counter, then set the dough on top. Pat (don’t roll) the dough until it is spread about ½ inch think.

STEP 5

Use the cookie cutter to punch out your biscuits before placing them on a lined baking sheet.

STEP 6

Bake the biscuits until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve warm with Grandma’s love.
