drop those biscuits!
Buttermilk Drop Biscuits
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon succcanet
1 cup chilled vegetable shortening or butter- sliced up
1 cup cold buttermilk ( I use reconstituted powdered buttermilk and it works just fine)
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, succanet and salt. Add butter and smush together until mixture resembles rice clumps.
Add one cup of buttermilk and stir until resembles cookie dough ( don't overstir) if too dry add more buttermilk.
Drop on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees.
Bake about 15 minutes, without opening the oven door, until the biscuits are golden brown.
Serve warm with butter, honey, jam, gravy, etc. Enjoy
