I like to fix these mini biscuits to eat along with fried tenderloin, country ham end slices or sausage. They're the perfect size for brunches or other occasions when you need finger foods. It is a little messy to make them, but they're so cute, light and tasty, they're worth it!
In a medium bowl sift:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. soda
- 2 tsp. baking powder
Make a little well in the flour
- Add 1/3 cup Crisco
- 2/3 cup buttermilk
Mix all ingredients with your hands until well blended.
Dust your counter with flour. Knead mixture several times.
Pat out dough to about 1/2" thick.
With the small side of your biscuit cutter (2" across), cut out biscuits.
Grease a baking pan and space biscuits out a little.
Bake in a 450 degree preheated oven. Check the bottoms after 10 minutes. If they are sufficiently browned, remove from oven. Do not over bake.
