  • Pour 2 cups of milk: Now, pour 2 cups of buttermilk into the flour hole. You can also use the whole milk instead. Add 1 tsp of baking powder.
    Pour 2 cups of milk
  • Add some Crisco: Now, add some Crisco into it. It’s about the size of two small eggs. Put it there now. You can add sour cream if you can’t manage Crisco. It’s a pretty substitute as well.

  •  Dry your hand properly: Use two fingers of your other hand. And clean your messy hands by pulling the sticky dough off your hands. Now, wash both hands and dry them with some sprinkles of flour. It Won’t be sticky anymore.

  • Cut the biscuit dough: Here, you go for cutting the dough into the biscuits. Use a pastry cutter and cut the dough by your desired shape. I made its rounds.

  • Bring them to bake: Place the biscuits into the greased pan and preheat your oven to 450 degrees. The faster you bake the biscuits, the softer and moisture the biscuits. Don’t bake slowly, it gets dry then.
    Bring them to bake
  •  Before serving: Before serving, remove the biscuits two times from the oven. Grease them with buttermilk and honey. Then bring them back to the oven. And thus, it will be baked for around 10 minutes. Then transfer them to a plate and have them with tea.
    Before serving


  • If you don’t have a pastry cutter, you can use a large round coffee spoon. Grab the dough with it and it will be round-sized.
  • Don’t you find any cast iron griddle? Don’t worry. Have a cast iron pan, and use its lower surface as the baking plate.

Store Process:

Though it’s better to have these biscuits instant you can also preserve them for the next time. But, it must be preserved unbaked. Otherwise, it will get hard and chewy-unfriendly biscuits.

Nutrition Facts:



Brenda Gantt makes her biscuits in a very short method. She wants to bake the biscuits as early as possible after making dough. Because she prefers the biscuits to be tender and soft. Following her procedures, you can get the same flavor. But if you want some crispy texture, you can bake it for a few more minutes. These delicious biscuits are more delicious with tea, coffee, and spicy snack items. just try out these with your beloveds.
