When I was in Texas for my first Spring, I was determined to “Do as the Texans did” and that included learning how to make my own biscuits. Thankfully I had a dear friend who was willing to share his grandmother’s recipe with me.
Sadly, my friend has since passed away, but through the cherished recipes he was able to share with me, his family legacy continues somewhat in my kitchen…thank you John ♥
This recipe is in his own words:
Hancock Family Biscuits
This is the same recipe my Mom, and my Grandma used, the only difference is, today I use Bob’s Red Mill whole grain organic flour and olive oil, instead of white flour and shortening. The white flour makes the traditional biscuits.
GETTING STARTED: In a mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt
(STEP 2) Cut-in 1/3 cup oil or melted shortening~ Mix together until it becomes a coarse meal.
(STEP 3) Add 3/4 cup buttermilk~ Mix together~ In order to achieve a “perfect dough consistency,” you may have to add a little water (Maybe 1 or 2 tbsp.)
(STEP 4) Grease a baking sheet then using an ice cream scoop, drop the dough balls [about 1 1/2" diameter] on the sheet. TIP: Grease the ice cream scoop first~ Should make about 8 biscuits. (STEP 5) Bake in hot oven 475 deg. F~ 18 to 23 minutes. Enjoy!
