Ingredients
  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter (frozen)
  • 4 Tbsp vegetable shortening (frozen)
  • 3 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • ½ Tsp baking soda
  • 1¼ Cup buttermilk
Instructions
  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 450F/230C
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients with a whisk in a bowl
  3. Cut frozen butter and vegetable shortening into ½-inch pieces and add to dry ingredients. Pinch the butter and shortening in between your fingers in order to mix it with the flour mixture. There can be little clumps of the butter and shortening in the mixture as this will create fluffy biscuits.
  4. Add buttermilk, until combined into a cohesive ball of dough. Roll dough out to a ¾" to 1" thickness and cut rounds using a biscuit cutter or cup.
  5. Place cut pieces of biscuit dough onto a pan lined with parchment paper. Make sure you place cut pieces upside down as they will rise more evenly
  6. Bake for 5 minutes and then rotate the pan and lower the oven to 400F/205F
  7. Bake until these homemade biscuits are golden brown or 10 to 12 minues
  8. Transfer to wire rack and let cool for 5 minutes
  9. Enjoy your delicious homemade biscuits
