Homemade Biscuit Recipe

Chef Felicia Willett shows us they’re not as hard to make from scratch as you think! Recipe included!


2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ c shortening
Flour for dusting
12 teaspoons butter
Flo’s Tomato Jam

Preheat oven to 425°. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Blend until well mixed. Place the dough on a floured surface. Pat the dough out into a circle about 1 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter, cut the dough into 2” round biscuits. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until light golden. Serve warm with butter and Flo’s Tomato Jam.
