It’s simple. I always used to make these gross flat little biscuits. Cooper gladly would eat the flat biscuits, because I made him some yummy Chocolate Gravy. He always thought they were so good. Recently, I’ve realized my biscuits just really suck and buying those biscuits in a can or frozen just don’t cut it like the homemade goodness. I tried new recipes, they tasted like cardboard. Finally I realized after watching a few episodes of well every cooking show on Food Network, I was rolling my dough too thin. Once I plumped up my dough width, suddenly I was making beautiful little tasty gems of biscuits. Finally after all these years, I did it! You need to try these biscuits!!
2 cups self rising flour
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons shortening
3/4-1 cup milk
Put flour in a bowl. Add butter and shortening. Mix with fingers or a pastry blender until it resembles crumbs. Add milk. Sometimes I have to add more, sometimes less. It really depends. You want it to be stick. Flour a surface and hands. Roll dough into about 3/4 inch thickness. Cut with round dough cutter. Put on sprayed cookie sheet. Bake at 450 until lightly brown on top. Usually about ten minutes. Pay attention to biscuits after about 5 minutes.
