YUMMY Buttermilk biscuits!

Mama Chris' Buttermilk Biscuits


2 ½ cups

Self-rising flour

½ tsp

Baking soda

½ cup

Shortening (Crisco)

¾ - 1 cup



  1. Heat oven to 450˚F
  2. In medium bowl, stir flour and baking soda together
  3. Cut in shortening with pastry blender until mixture looks like fine crumbs
  4. Stir in buttermilk until dough rounds up into a ball (leave some flour on sides of bowl – add more buttermilk as needed)
  5. Break off pieces and roll into balls. If making cheese biscuits, flatten, add cheese, pinch together and roll again.
  6. Place on ungreased or floured cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes (until brown on top)

Tip: You can also make these with regular milk for regular biscuits, but don't put in baking soda.


YUM! I LOVE my Mama Chris' buttermilk biscuits! SO, this past week, I went over to her house and BEGGED her to show me how to make them! This is the recipe, with her notes added J I hope you enjoy them! We make them with cheese of course!

Name frame

I made this for my grandmother!  It's for her door at the assisted living facility.  I LOVE it!  Her favorite color is blue.  I used the retired Creative License Simply Scrappin kit paper with stars on it.  The letters were stamped in Baja Breeze, inked the edges with Kiwi Kiss, and matted each one on Pacific Point.  I added  a little bit of Whisper White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and also stamped the kids (all Granny's great-grandchildren!) on Whisper White and colored in using random colors.  Let me know what you think. 
Oh and I'm going to REMOVE the word verification and add message monitoring.  Hopefully, this will INCREASE the number of comments I'll get....
