This morning we woke up to a winter wonderland outside. So lovely. Being the sweet older sister that I am, I dragged myself out of bed extra early to bake warm, fluffy biscuits for breakfast. Baking for my sisters is such fun; Jessie will never get tired of a sweet snack to pair with her tea obsession, Maddie won’t tell me if she’s unimpressed (which is a very good thing ;), and Megan has considerably low expectations (she’d rather have an oreo than chocolate mousse!) What will I do without these three? Anyway. While obediently washing my dishes after sticking these delights in the oven, I lost myself in the slow-paced world of morning grogginess. Thankfully, Mom saved our breakfast just in time from being baked to a deathly crisp. I happily enjoyed a honey-butter filled breakfast this morning while the flurries quietly drifted to the ground all around me.

- Prep: 10-15 mins
- Cook: 12 mins
- Ready In: 22 mins
Yummies biscuits I've ever made.
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 3/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Sugar
- 2 tablespoons Butter
- 2 tablespoons Shortening
- 1 cup Buttermilk chilled
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Combine dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Cut in butter and shortening (work quickly so that the fats do not melt).
- Make a well and pour buttermilk into dry ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon just until dough comes together. The dough will be very sticky.
- Turn dough out onto a floured surface and gently fold over (5-6 times).
- Press into a 1-inch round circle and use the lip of a 2" round cup to make biscuits. Place on a cookie sheet so that they just touch.
- Bake until golden brown (12-15 minutes).
