As we look for more ways to save time in the kitchen, yet still enjoy delicious, home-cooked meals, easy recipes like this one are the way to go. That’s why I’m excited to share with you this three-ingredient biscuit recipe! It’s quick, easy and delicious – sure to become a regular in your meal rotation.
For this recipe, you’ll need three ingredients: self-rising flour, vegetable shortening, and buttermilk. That’s it! You can find self-rising flour in the baking aisle of your grocery store, and vegetable shortening is usually in the baking aisle as well.
Start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, combine two cups of self-rising flour in a bowl with two tablespoons of vegetable shortening. Use a pastry cutter to cut the shortening into the flour until it has a crumbly texture. Then, add one cup of buttermilk to the mixture and stir it together with a spoon until it forms a soft dough.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it a few times. Roll out the dough to about ½ inch thick and cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on a greased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
These biscuits are delicious on their own, but they also make a great accompaniment to any meal. Serve them with scrambled eggs and sausage for breakfast, or alongside a creamy vegetable soup for lunch. They’re also great for making sandwich sliders – just split them open and add whatever filling you like!
Tips and Tricks
When cutting out the biscuits, make sure to press straight down with the biscuit cutter and don’t twist it. Twisting the cutter will cause the edges of the biscuit to seal up, preventing the biscuit from rising as it bakes.
Also, if you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make your own by combining one cup of all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of baking powder, and ½ teaspoon of salt.
If your biscuits don’t rise as much as you’d like, it could be because the oven wasn’t hot enough before baking. Make sure it’s preheated to the correct temperature and give your biscuits enough time to rise before baking.
Also, if your biscuits are too dry, it could be because you didn’t knead the dough enough. Knead it for at least a minute or two before rolling it out so that it has a chance to become more elastic.
