1. Pre-heat the oven
The first step in making Nana’s biscuits is to preheat your oven to 450°F-500 F. This will give your biscuits a golden-brown finish and the perfect amount of flakiness. Set the oven to the right temperature before you begin and make sure that it has reached the desired temperature before you start baking. This will help ensure your biscuits turn out perfectly every time!
2. Gather the Ingredients
Before you can begin making your biscuits, you’ll need to gather a few ingredients. You will need 3 cups White-Lily Self-Rising Flour, 6 tablespoons butter-flavored Crisco stick, 1 1/2 cups thick whole buttermilk.
3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients
Begin by mixing the dry ingredients into a bowl – pour your measured out flour into your mixing bowl of your stand mixer and work in the shortening with a pastry blender. Add the buttermilk all at once and stir quickly with a dough hook until flour is all dampened and combined. At this point your biscuit dough is ready!
4. Roll Dough Out and Cut
Turn out onto a floured surface and pat out or use a rolling pin (floured) to 1” thickness (the less you handle the dough, the lighter the biscuits). Cut with floured biscuit cutter and place on a greased baking sheet. I prefer an Iron Skillet because it cooks the biscuits to a golden brown.
5. Bake Biscuits for 15-20 minutes
Every batch of biscuits is different, so use your best judgement to determine the right baking time. You want the biscuits to be lightly golden brown and nice and crispy on the outside, but still soft and flaky inside. Keep an eye on them as they bake and when they’re done, set them aside to cool while you get ready to serve. Enjoy with your favorite topping!
Tips from Nanas’ Kitchen
Tip 1. Pastry blenders are great for getting the shortening mixed in good
Tip 2. Using a hook dough makes it easier on you, plus it mixes the ingredients up much better
Tip 3. If you don’t have a pastry blender, no worries you can use the open end of a glass to cut out your biscuits. I just break off some dough and roll it up and then pat it out into the pan. (You will need some extra flour to dust onto your hands, so the dough won’t stick to you)
Tip 4. Melt some real butter and brush over the biscuits when you take them out of the oven, then butter the insides too. So dang delicious!!
REMEMBER: The less you handle the dough, the lighter the biscuits! Happy Baking and Enjoy!
