Buttermilk Biscuits

The nice thing with a great Sunday dinner is some buttermilk biscuits!

This recipe is quite easy to follow and make!


3 cups plain, all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup cold Crisco® Zero Grams Trans Fat Shortening
2 tablespoons no-salt margarine, cold, cut into bits
1 1/3 cups buttermilk


Preheat oven to 450 °F. In a bowl whisk together flour, sugar and baking powder.
Cut cold shortening and margarine with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Then stir in buttermilk to form a soft dough. With floured hands knead dough gently eight times in bowl. Flatten dough to a 3/4 inch thickness. Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter or glass dipped in flour, cut out biscuits. Place biscuits about 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Gather the trimmings to make the final biscuit. Bake biscuits on the middle rack of the oven for about 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

You can also jam to the ingredients for a different flavour. If you are on a dialysis diet like me try to find low potassium jams like cherry, pineapple or blackberry to add to the mix.
