20 Minute Homemade Biscuits

   I call these the 20 Minute Homemade Biscuits… I’ve made these countless times over the years … They are by far one of the fastest bread sides I’ve come across… and they can darn near be added to any meal!  I found these biscuits through allrecipes … and I’ve made them with both butter or shortening and they turn out perfect either way!

We love these biscuits… they melt in your mouth!  Not only that but they take 20 minutes to make from start to finish!!  Sure beats those tubes of biscuits you pick up in the refrigerated section at the grocery store…  How fresh are those??  See any ingredients on the back you can’t even sound out???  And then compare to price for one tube to this recipe… Pennies on the dollar!

Its a win win!!  :)

Here's a good trick... Grab one end and fold it over...  That way when they are done its easy to cut them down the middle and open them up!

You could totally use a biscuit cutter and cut them out... But I just like to slice them so there no wasted dough at the end!

  8. This is so funny, In England we call these scones! We traditionally eat them with a cup of tea, clotted cream and some homemade strawberry jam! I’ve never heard them being called biscuits! Biscuits are flat little things that crunch when you bite them – like cookies!

    These have such a great rise on them! Will definitely be trying your recipe to see if they taste any different to scones!
