My 5 year old is a bread guy. For sure. He remembers restaurants by their naan, tortillas, or french bread. And he has a special place in his heart for homemade buttermilk biscuits.
These one are served weekly around here- they are both easy and yummy!
4 T shortening
2 c flour
3 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
3/4 cup buttermilk, well shaken
DIRECTIONS Cut the shortening and flour/baking soda/salt together with a pastry cutter. Slowly add buttermilk, stirring with a fork to form dough. Flatten onto a floured surface. Cut out small circles using a biscuit cutter (or, in our case, a juice glass). *Note, the less you touch the dough, the better.
Bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes (the original recipe says 10-12 minutes, but it takes longer around here).
Serve (and earn extra mom-stars from your littlest Bread Guy). YUM!
