Self Rising FlourI used Gold Medal brand - 2.5 cups + 2 Tbsps for dusting
Sugar - 2 tsps
Vegetable Shortening - 1/2 cup
Butter Milk - 3/4 cup
Pre-heat the oven to 450 deg F.
In a mixing bowl, sieve the flour and add sugar.
Now add the vegetable shortening and mix until the mixture is crumbly.
At this stage slowly stir in buttermilk and form the dough.
On a lightly floured surface, knead dough just until smooth.
Now roll the dough like chapati approximately 1/2 inch thickness.
Using a cutting cutter or round bowl, cut the dough out.
In a baking tray keep the silicone sheet and place these cut biscuits 1 inch apart.
Bake this for 10 to 12 minutes until they turn brown.
If the dough is dry, add 1 or 2 tbsps of buttermilk and if the dough is too wet, add more flour. You can replace vegetable shortening with butter. Also, instead of buttermilk, you can use regular milk or whipped cream. If you are using regular all purpose flour, add in the necessary amount of salt and baking powder.Adapted from Gold Medal Flour Website
