TOUCH OF GRACE BISCUITS
1 1/2 cups *self-rising soft-wheat flour (like
1/8 tsp. soda
1/3 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. sugar
3 Tbs. shortening
1 to 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
(or 3/4 cup buttermilk and 1/2 cup heavy cream)
1 cup **all-purpose flour
2 Tbs. butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 465 B0 and spray an 8-inch
round cake pan
with a non stick cooking spray.
Combine 1 1/2 cups of the self-rising flour, soda, salt, and sugar in a medium mixing bowl. With your fingers or a pastry blender work the shortening into the flour mixture until there are no shortening lumps larger than a large pea. Stir in the buttermilk and let stand for 2 or 3 minutes. This dough will be so wet that you cannot shape it in the usual manner.
Pour the cup of all-purpose flour into a plate or
Flour your hands well.
Spoon a biscuit-size lump of the wet dough into the flour and sprinkle some flour over the wet dough to coat the outside. Pick up the biscuit and shape it roughly into a soft round ball at the same time The dough is so soft that it will not hold its shape. As you shape each biscuit, place it in the pan.
Push the biscuits tightly against each other so they will rise up and not spread out.
Continue shaping biscuits in this manner until all of the dough is used.
Brush the biscuits with melted butter and bake just above the center of the oven until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool for 1 or 2 minutes in the pan, then dump out and cut the biscuits apart.
Notes: If low-protein Southern self-rising flour is not available, use 1 cup national-brand self-rising and 1/2 cup instant flour (such as Shake and Blend or Wondra) or cake flour, plus 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
* If self-rising flour is not available, use a total of 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder.
** Do not use self-rising flour for shaping since the leavener will give a bitter taste to the outside of the biscuit.
