In Response to Re: Biscuits!!!hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm : Frances... I know and I guess I should be ashame but I just never make biscuits that much. I did make the Cheddar biscuits like you get at Red Lobster a few times. I pretty much make everything else home-made though!! If I do make biscuits, I use Bisquit! I love Buttermilk biscuits the best...would you please share a Buttermilk Biscuit recipe with me?! Thanks Frances!

just for you!
· 4 cups self-rising flour
· 1 tablespoon white sugar
· 1 tablespoon baking powder
· 2/3 cup shortening
· 2 cups buttermilk
· 1/4 cup buttermilk
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease two baking sheets.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder; stir well. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Add 2 cups buttermilk and mix just to moisten.
3. Roll out dough to 1 inch thick and cut into biscuits. Place biscuits on prepared baking sheets; brush tops with remaining 1/4 cup buttermilk.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden.
· 1/2 cup cold butter or margarine
· 2 1/4 c self rising soft wheat flour *
· 1 1/4 c buttermilk (or whole milk with a tablespoon of lemon juice added)
· flour for dusting
· melted butter for brushing baked biscuits
1. Cut butter with a into 1/4-inch-thick slices.Put butter slices on top of flour in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour with a long tined fork until crumbly. Cover and chill 10 minutes. Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times, gradually adding additional flour as needed. With floured hands, press or pat dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches). Sprinkle top of dough with additional flour. Fold dough over into itself, like you are folding a piece of paper into a letter, in three sections. Repeat entire process 2 more times, beginning with pressing into a 3/4-inch-thick dough rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches).
3. Press or pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut with a 2-inch round cutter, and place, side by side, on a parchment paper-lined or lightly greased cookie sheet. Try to make sure they touch because this will help them rise higher.
4. Bake at 450° for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; brush with 2 Tbsp. melted butter.
