The recipe makes the BEST buttermilk biscuits! And, these ingredients work together so well for incredible taste, flaky layers, and super big, fluffy Southern buttermilk biscuits.
Preheat oven to 475° F. Place a layer of parchment or Silpat onto a rimmed baking sheet, or lightly coat that baking sheet or a cast iron skillet with vegetable shortening or butter. Set aside.
Add the flour to a large mixing bowl. Then, add the cold shortening, butter, or bacon fat and combine with flour by cutting it in with a pastry blender, two forks, or knives until it’s well combined and looks like a coarse meal.
