Breakfast Biscuits

I have been trying and trying to perfect my homemade biscuits and I finally figured out what my problem has been all along.

Are you ready for this secret?

I mean it really is a secret.

The secret to delicious fluffy biscuits is this: DO NOT OVERWORK THE DOUGH!

And I mean that with all simplicity that it says. You barely mess with the dough and you will have mouth watering biscuits that look this delish!

Here is the delicious recipe for these mouthwatering homemade Yummies:

2 cups self rising flour
3 TBSP shortening
1 cup milk

Put flour in a bowl.
Add shortening.
Mix those two together barely.
Add milk.
Stir with a fork just until blended. (dough will be sticky)
Flour surface and scoop dough out onto floured surface.
Sprinkle dough with a little more flour and begin to knead a couple of times until dough is covered with flour and no longer sticky.
Roll dough out to 1/2-1" thick and cut biscuits.
Cook in over on 450 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.
Turn oven to broil to brown biscuits on top.
Brush with melted butter.
