Biscuits. Everybody has an opinion on them - particularly in the South where nary a country breakfast spread exists without a steaming batch fresh out of the oven.

They're also served hot with a side of controversy: lard versus butter, White Lily flour versus run-of-the-mill, twisting or not twisting the biscuit cutter. Generations of home cooks, like Lisa Fain, have sat around the table buttering up their own version and debating the right way to make them.

Fain - a Texas native-turned-New Yorker - writes the Homesick Texan food blog, and has now compiled those nostalgic recipes she grew up with into “The Homesick Texan Cookbook.”

She's not claiming her biscuits are the end-all be-all, but you can bet your cowboy boots they're pretty darn delicious.

Biscuits
Makes 10 to 12 biscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold (1 stick)
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half or buttermilk

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and grease a baking sheet or cast-iron skillet.
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  3. Cut the stick of butter into pieces and work it into the flour mixture with your hands or pastry blender until it resembles pea-size crumbs. Add the half-and-half or buttermilk, mixing until the dough is a bit loose and sticky.
  4. Pour the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for a minute. Dough should be smooth and no longer wet. You can sprinkle more flour on the surface if you find it's sticking. Make the dough into a ball and hit it with a rolling pin, turning it and folding it in half every few whacks. Do this for a couple of minutes.
  5. Roll out the dough until it's 1/4 of an inch think, then fold it in half. Using a round biscuit cutter (you can use a glass or a cup if you don't have a biscuit cutter), cut out the biscuits from the folded dough. Place on a greased baking sheet or in a cast-iron skillet close together, about 1/8 of an inch apart (so they rise up not out), and bake for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

NOTE: If you don't want to roll and cut them out, after kneading and beating the dough you can drop the dough onto the baking sheet with a spoon. They're not as symmetrical (dropped biscuits are also known as cat-head biscuits), but they're no less delicious.

    Leave out the sugar, cut in grease only long enough that it comes together, work fast to keep the grease cold, some flour in the bottom of the bowl is OK, do not roll, do not beat, biscuits are tender the less you work them the better. You want a hot skillet, with 1/8 inch of grease in the bottom. drop in a biscuit then turn it over to grease both sides for a great crust, slide each one up next to it's neighbors for them to rise into a tall fluffy tender biscuit.....

      Do you use bacon grease instead of the butter?

    The biscuits sure do look delicious! I have no doubt that they truly taste that way as well!! It would appear the Baker, Lisa Fain, did not do anything wrong by using her drinking glass to cut the biscuits from the dough and I don’t understand some of the negative comments. The biscuits I see in the photos definitely look like they baked up golden brown, fluffy, soft, and perfect!! I’m not a Southerner, but I lived in the South for 18 years. I lived in Georgia for over a year and then Florida for 18 years. If I learned anything about living in the South it was, Southerners are very serious about their food. Especially their homemade biscuits and the correct or proper way to make them, “those are fightin' werds!!" YES, REALLY! LOL!

    Truthfully I didn’t get the big deal over the entire homemade biscuit making “thing” because the way I saw and still see it, almost every Southern family has their own recipe. However, I witnessed a lot of fights, “b*tch” sessions, back stabbing, and friendships breaking up over the battle over who made the better homemade biscuit. I am NOT kidding here, pretty unbelievable, LOL!
    As I said, who cares who has the better homemade biscuit for crying out loud because almost every family in the South has their own recipe. Does it really matter in the big scheme of things who does this or that, who cuts/kneads/rolls or doesn’t do all those things, or uses this ingredient or that ingredient?!? As long as the homemade biscuit tastes great, well then, WHAT is the problem?!

    Normally when our family eats biscuits or has a hankerin’ for one, we just buy a bag of “Pillsbury Grands Southern Style” in the freezer section. You just cannot go wrong with those, they bake up just like homemade and they’re greeeeat!! However, on a Sunday morning if I’m feeling particularly energetic and am making my homemade Sausage Gravy w/ biscuits then I’ll make this homemade biscuit recipe! I’m thinking the homemade biscuits will go really nicely with the homemade sausage gravy! I’m also thinking we won’t taste much difference in these biscuits and the frozen Pillsbury Southern Style biscuits, seriously, and yeah the frozen biscuits are THAT good!! I swear I just heard the entire southern section of the United States gasp just now after I typed my last statement, hahaha! :-b

    Thanks Lisa Fain AND CNN for posting such a great recipe! :o)

      You could also use a cake pan. Something round is best so they can stay close and rise, rather than spread.

    By the way, be careful with store bought lard. It has the hydrogenated oil in it added to the pork fat. It's not all pork fat! I haven't tried it in biscuits yet, but I deep fry in a healthy beef lard from http://www.USWellnessMeats.com . High in omega-3 and CLAs. Guilt free frying! So, I'm going to try it in the morning, and I'm going to soak my wheat tonight and go out and get some buttermilk!

    October 1, 2011 at 3:09 am |
    • The Honey Dipper

      Well that was a wonderful example of a true Ellie May biscuit! LOL!!! Fresh ground soaked whole wheat biscuits. Sounds healthy but nothing like they have on Earth! I started them on the skillet and finished them in the oven. Took one out, opened it, slathered it with butter and honey; and actually my wife said with a surprised look on her face, "They're good!" Weird.

      October 1, 2011 at 4:43 pm |
      • The Honey Dipper

        Yeah, they didn't seemingly rise very much at all, and they ended up as crispy on the outside whole wheat cookies. They were splittable and amazingly enough we each had three of them. Won't be happening again very soon. :-)

        October 1, 2011 at 5:10 pm |
  12. The Honey Dipper

    Excuse me please... What stove temperature do I use whilst heating up the cast iron skillet? (Did you enjoy my grammar and special word of the day... "whilst"? :-) This has bee a fun thread! By the way, here's a new one I came up with using sliced and butter sauteed green bell peppers: Add this ingredient at the last minute in the skillet... pure grade B maple syrup. Oh my sweet Lord! Everyone came back for seconds of these! Yeah mon!

    October 1, 2011 at 2:52 am |
  13. john hillman

    Cake flour makes much lighter biscuits (no gluten). Working the dough as much as this recipe days will guarantee more gluten fibers and a tougher biscuit. You want to keep the dough as cold as possible. The more your hands are in it, the warmer it gets.

    2 cups of flour with "normal" hydration weighs 8.82 ounces or 250 grams

    October 1, 2011 at 2:39 am |
  14. Dave H

    I recently got into actually rendering my own lard, and gave up on teflon for two antique cast-iron pans. My question is – for those in the know – why do people keep mentioning "shortening" when lard is both better for you, and the more classic ingredient to mix and fry in?

    October 1, 2011 at 2:37 am |
    • Mighty7

      Man, took me a second to realize you were speaking about making your own lard. What I understood was a bit too gross to imagine.

      October 1, 2011 at 9:14 am |
    • Shelle

      I think people associate "shortening" with "vegetable," and assume it's healthier because it's not animal fat.

      (Give me lard and butter any day.)

    I'd prefer to have to the ingredients listed by weight, not volume. Tell me how many ounces of flour to use, not how many cups. I spent years getting hit-and-miss results until I learned that, It really does make a difference.

    Both my grandmothers (not to mention my aunts) would turn over in their graves if they heard someone say to add sugar to biscuits, much less beat them to death. Biscuits should be handled gently and lard, not butter or shortening. And, yes, Formula L with buttermilk or in a pinch, whole milk with a teaspoon of vinegar per cup ( I even fooled my step daddy with Formula L, had him thinking I made them from scratch).

      Unfortunately, no, dear. But try Formula L, its all premixed, just follow the instructions on the bag. You can find it in the flour section of most grocery stores.

  21. Corey

    Biscuits are no joke!! White Lily flour. NO SUGAR!!! Half butter, half shortening (both need to be ICE cold). More emphasis needs to be put on not over mixing them, they will turn out tough and not rise well. Its really easy to over mix. Only mix until the dough comes together, some flour at the bottom is okay. No kneading is necessary. Also they forgot to mention that if you twist the cutter, they will not rise well, if at all. :)

      October 1, 2011 at 12:44 am |
  22. PatRedstone

    The "secret" to this recipe (as in any biscuit recipe) is threefold: 1. work fast (to keep the shortning cold) 2. Don't over knead 20-30 is good enough. You might even dip your hands in ice water before you do that. 3. Preheat your iron skillet and always, always use an iron skillet.

    • SC redneck by birth

      I am with you there. This looks like the way someone would make biscuits if they learned from a bad recipe book. Cutting biscuits is barbaric, IMHO. DROP BISCUITS are sooooo much better. And don't go easy on the shortnin', you hear? Flakier, softer, tastier. Whether you eat them with fried chicken or slip some rare roast beast in the middle, you are in heaven.

      When I studied abroad in France during college, I cooked a meal of southern pan-fried (the only right way!) chicken and mama's drop biscuits. I thought those french epicureans were going to get into a fist fight over that stuff. If I had been able to find some okra to fry, they would have died of happiness, I am sure.

        @ SC redneck by birth….I wanted to ask, what is “roast beast”? I’ve never heard of that before. Doesn’t sound very appetizing with “beast” thrown in there. I’ve been cooking and baking for a long time and I just cannot believe I’ve never heard of “roast beast” before! Hmmm. Anyway, I don’t mean this to be funny but isn’t making “drop” biscuits almost against homemade biscuits rules? LOL!! IMHO, I cannot stand “drop” biscuits, they just aren’t right and a true/real biscuit to me is one that is rolled then cut. Okra = slimey/slippery/awful tasting = GAG! Never did acquire a taste for that stuff. I noticed there’s many witling kind of posts, this seems to be one of them.

        For KadeeW

        "Roast beast" is roast beef. Check out "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas".

        Only boiled okra is slimy. Fried it is a crunchy confection.

        Pillsbury biscuits don't even belong on this dicussion board.

      The recipe looks boring, true. But make a batch of biscuits and sit down and eat one or two with your favorite spread, or jam; syrup or honey; or sausage or ham and you will discover why so many have gone through the boring recipe for so long.

        I guess it's a good thing I'm from Colorado then. In general, Colorado is quite a bit skinnier than the south and our abject lack of biscuits and gravy probably plays a part in that. A biscuit to us is usually a fast-food item, something to be eaten when there is no other option. The rare occasion we have biscuits for dinner, most people open a can of dough. I've had the canned kind and a few homemade recipes, but the Kroger biscuit mix is the best.

        Sugar assists the rising process of breads made with yeast. Yeast is a live fungi that converts the sugar into carbon dioxide which leaves littles absesses in the bread causing it to rise. As this recipe has no yeast, the sugar does nothing to help it rise.

        I cook plenty and sugar doesn't belong in biscuits. The Swedish Chef is right on about the science,

        Yep, Swedish Chef is on the money with the "no sugar". In reading that part of the article, I could only think "Is this woman an idiot?" However, I really, really wish you had found another word besides "abscess" to describe the voids in bread. Now I can't quit thinking of bread with pus leaking out.

        The sugar makes them brown better, but put a plate of biscuits on my table and you won't know what color they were unless you look at the crumbs. I don't do the sugar.

    Grammar!! Biscuit recipe that can't be BEATEN, not beat. What's next? The best food you've ever eat? Or is it just et? (As in, I et a biscuit that can't be beat.) I saw a story the other day that the U.S. has the worst SAT scores ever, falling more and more behind other countries in education. Ignorance about your own language and a shrinking vocabulary aren't going to help you get a job. Why, why, WHY can't professional writers actually write and set an example?

      The material you read from generations past was written by the best authors – you never see the bad stuff. While this person probably isnt in line for a Pulitzer it AIN'T the end of the world.
