This is our family biscuit recipe! My mama, my Memaw, and my mother in law all use this similar recipe and it's a family favorite! My daddy loves these especially and eats his with gravy. Casey loves his with Apple Butter. My mama has a home video from when I was about 2 1/2 making these same biscuits. I love making these with my kiddos!
3 cups sifted self rising flour
3/4 cup crisco
1 cup buttermilk
Cut crisco into flour. Add milk. Roll out and cut cut into circles (I use a small glass to cut ours, a cookie cutter will work too). Line on a baking sheet with sides touching. Top each biscuit with melted butter.
Bake at 400 degrees for 18 minutes or until golden on top.
Don't overwork the dough
Place them touching side by side to help them rise!
Eat them up!
