In this video, you’ll see how to make flakey, fluffy homemade biscuits. All it takes are just a handful of ingredients: all-purpose flour, a little baking powder, some shortening, salt, and milk. So simple to make, they’re the perfect all-day biscuit: great at breakfast with eggs and sausage gravy or just topped with a little butter and honey; wonderful split for a sandwich; and, of course, a must-have at dinner time.

Just one more comment(s)Work your biscuit dough just enough to absorb the flour. Don't overwork.Do NOT use a mixer! Over working develops the gluten in the flour and makes a tough biscuit.

In the flaky biscuit comment, I forgot to say, "paint with butter" and in the comment regarding reheating, "remove from the ziplock bag" sometimes my mind outpaces my "flying fingers".

Biscuits can be made ahead in one of two ways.Make the dough the night before. Roll out and pan, cover with plastic film and refrigerate overnight. Just increase the baking time a bit, 10 minutes or so.You can bake the night before, let them cool and put them in a ziplock bag. Warm them in your oven just before serving.DON"'T NEUKUM!
