Basic Lemon Biscuits
Ingredients
1
tablespoon sugar
2
teaspoons baking powder
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup shortening
1/3
cup buttermilk
1/3
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
Directions
  1. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon peel, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of dry mixture. Combine buttermilk and mayonnaise or salad dressing; add to dry mixture all at once. Stir just until moistened.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Quickly knead by folding and pressing gently for 10 to 12 strokes or until the dough is nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a floured 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, dipping the cutter into flour between cuts.
  3. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 450 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Remove the biscuits from the baking sheet and cool slightly. Serve warm. Makes 6 to 8.
