Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

A good substitute to bread every day is to have some biscuits once in awhile. These biscuits are very tasty and easy to make.


  • 2 Cups all purpose flour

  • 3 Tbsp. baking powder

  • 1 Tsp. sugar

  • 1/2 Tsp. baking soda

  • 1/2 Tsp. salt

  • ,li>1/4 Cup butter
  • 2 Tbsp. shortening

  • 1 Cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or your hands, cut in the butter and shortening until mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.

Add buttermilk and mix gently until a soft dough forms.

Turn dough out onto a floured work area and knead gently 6 to 8 times.

Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet and bake until golden brown (about 12 to 15 minutes). Serve immediatley.
