The Buttermilk Biscuits
Preparing the Biscuits:
Start with the Buttermilk Biscuits. Here’s how you make them:
3 cups of self-rising flour
1/2 cup of lard (yes, lard, it makes a flakier biscuit)
A pinch of sugar
Cut the lard into the flour and add a pinch of sugar. Add enough buttermilk to make a soft dough. Knead it until it’s smooth (avoid over-kneading to prevent tough biscuits).
Pinch off a bit of the dough and roll it into a ball. Lightly flatten it in a greased iron skillet or pan.
Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for 15-18 minutes. Brush with melted butter when removed from the oven.
Now that we have our Buttermilk Biscuits ready, let’s move on to the main event – creating the Omelet Biscuits.
