Basic Biscuits

Plays: 82991

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. Watch the video, then get lenihan5’s top-rated for Basic Biscuits. Best of all, they’re ready in about 30 minutes. See more biscuit and bread videos >>

In Australia we call them scones! and old staple for us, yes you can use margerine, although butter tastes nicer, we also use lemonade with a little cream to give good fluffyness and no baking powder.

These sound really good, but I will be using margarine. Do I use the same amount of margarine as I would the shortening? Thanks in advance :)
