Summertime and the living is easy….not really easy…but definitely better! Yes, summer brings its own busyness…gardens to tend…clothes to hang on the line…preserving the bounty…picnics and barbeques to attend. Summer is busy, but it is a good busy!
This morning I spied some fresh tomatoes sitting on the counter; which made me want a tomato biscuit. Not really on the diet…but these are the first tomatoes of the season…so….
- 3 cups self-rising flour
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup cultured buttermilk
Add one cup of cultured buttermilk (I made my own using raw milk…learn how here.)Mix with a wooden spoon (or in true southern style..use your hands.) It may be slightly sticky, but that’s okay.
Start cutting out your biscuits, and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. (you don’t NEED the parchment, but it does make clean-up super easy)Take those scraps of dough and gently knead them together.And keep cutting.
Yummy! You can brush the tops with butter. I highly recommend it!
