Yield: 6

Ingredients

2 cups All Purpose flour
a pinch of salt
1 tsp of baking powder
3 tbsp of shortening or butter (chilled)
1 cup of buttermilk
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon melted butter

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 425 F and place your cast iron skillet pan or baking tray in the oven.

2. In a bowl, add the flour, salt and baking powder. Then add the shortening or butter. Using a pastry cutter or 2 round bladed knives, combine everything until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

3. Add the buttermilk to the flour mix and incorporate until all wet. You may need to add a little bit of additional milk, just to make the mix workable.

4. Once the mixture turns into a dough, shape and gently pat the dough so it is of an even thickness of about 1 inch thick with your hands. Then using a round cutter, cut the biscuits.

5. When you have cut the biscuits out, remove the heated skillet / baking tray from the oven and spray or brush with vegetable oil. Then place the biscuits on the pan / tray and return to oven. Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Once ready, remove from the oven and brush the tops with melted butter and serve warm.

  1. I just baked these, delicious! Actually, I made the dough yesterday and kept it in a bowl in the refrigerator. Instead of rolled biscuits, I made drop biscuits. I had to adjust the time as the dough was a bit chilled, but they came out golden and delicious. I really like the idea of using a cast iron skillet.

    1. Hi Barb! That sounds so delicious and I love the idea of doing drop biscuits. Much less work :)
      Thanks for your lovely feedback and wishing you a super weekend!

    1. Hi Del, yes, you can use regular milk, however, using buttermilk (milk with lemon juice or vinegar) is what will make these biscuits very soft and fluffy. Milk alone won’t give you the same texture, but yes, it is possible!
