Sunday there was a luncheon after church with a brunch theme. I don't know about you but time seems to be lacking on Sunday mornings. I decided to take in biscuits and gravy. I really didn't want to get up at the crack of dawn to make biscuits so I searched for a dough I could make the night before.
Sift 4 cups self rising flour and 2 Tbs sugar
Cut in 2/3 cup shortening until it resembles cornmeal
With a fork mix in 2 cups buttermilk
Knead for 20 minutes.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate over night. The next morning roll the dough to 1 in thickness. Place biscuits 1 in apart on a ungreased cookie sheet and let proof for 5 minutes. Bake at 425* for 12-14 minutes. Brush with butter when done.
My family declared this recipe a keeper.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
