Pop made these biscuits every chance he got, just like his mom made them. They are amazing drizzled with honey, stuffed with sausage & eggs, or smothered in milk gravy.
2 cups Martha White® Self-Rising Flour
1/4 Vegetable oil (or shortening)
3/4 cup milk (or buttermilk)
Heat oven to 450°F & Oil a cast iron skillet.
1. Place flour in large bowl. With a large spoon or by hand, carefully blend in oil (or cut in shortening with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs)
2. Add milk; stir gently.
3. The dough will be kind of sticky and wet, there is no need to knead this dough. All you have to do is stir the dough just until it comes together and then scoop about 6 heaping mounds into a well-oiled cast iron skillet. (Place one in the center and the remaining in a circle surrounding the center one.)
Bake until golden brown on top, about 20 minutes.
Use only Martha White flour. The more you make this recipe, the better you will get at making them awesome. It's definitely one of those "feel" recipes. <3
