Dutch Country Biscuit recipe

Country Biscuit Recipe

These biscuits were my grandmothers recipe who grew up in Adams County.  I am not sure where it originated, but it was a staple growing up!

Submitted by: Rebecca from Abbotstown


2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons shortening of choice

2/3 cup buttermilk


Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture is the consistency of a thick meal then stir in buttermilk. Form mixture into a ball; place on a floured surface and knead a few times. Pat out to about 1/4-inch thick. Cut with a small biscuit cutter (or an old soup can if you need). Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Cut open and spread with a little grass-fed butter.
