Head Chef Frank Gonzales from Rustler's Rooste shares a recipe for homemade buttermilk biscuits.
Ingredients: 2 lbs. flour 1 tsp. sugar 1 Tbsp. dry milk 1 Tbsp. baking Powder .25 oz. salt .25 lb. shortening 1 egg 4 oz. buttermilk Water
Method: Combine all dry ingredients, add shortening and mix thoroughly. Combine eggs and buttermilk. Mix with dry ingredients; add water to get consistency which is still sticky wan wet throughout.
Place dough on a flour dusted cutting board. Knead dough for about a minute and then roll out, letting dough pull back to center if it wants. Lift the dough, roll again, turning dough over. Do not spend a lot of time handling dough, this keeps the biscuits from rising and being fluffy. Dough needs bo be 3/4-inch thick when cut and then placed on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Bake the biscuits at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Turn the pan 180 degrees and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes. This should yield 8 to 10 biscuits.
The next step is to enjoy your hot and flaky biscuits!
