  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Mix all dry ingredients together with a fork, in a wide, large mixing bowl. 

  3. Grate the frozen butter (with a large grater) into the bowl. Add shortening. Next, "cut" in the butter & shortening with your fork until the mixture is crumbly. 

  4. Pour buttermilk into the middle of the bowl & blend biscuits until a somewhat sticky dough has formed. 

  5. Prepare surface with flour & roll out your biscuit dough until about 3/4" thick. 

  6. Place biscuits on a baking sheet & bake for about 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.
