Yes, it’s fun to try out exciting new recipes, but sometimes what you need is some old-fashioned home cooking. And is there really any better comfort food than a hot-out-of-the-oven buttery biscuit? We think not. Here, an easy, three-ingredient recipe for perfect, golden-brown biscuits, just like Grandma used to make.

What You Need:
 - 4 cups self-rising flour
 - 1½ cups buttermilk
 - ½ cup shortening, melted
 - a sifter
 - a round cookie cutter

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 500°F. While it warms, sift the flour into a large bowl.

Step 2: Make a well in the center of the flour with your fist. Pour the buttermilk and melted shortening into the middle of the well.

Step 3: Stir the ingredients together with a fork until thoroughly combined. 

Step 4: Sprinkle some extra flour onto the counter, then set the dough on top. Pat (don’t roll) the dough until it is spread about ½ inch think.

Step 5: Use the cookie cutter to punch out your biscuits before placing them on a lined baking sheet.

Step 6: Bake the biscuits until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve warm with Grandma’s love.
