- 10 biscuits
- Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
- 1 1/2 cups White Lily® Enriched Bleached Self-Rising Flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
- 1/2 cup cold heavy cream
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup White Lily® Enriched Bleached All-Purpose Flour
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- HEAT oven to 450°F. Coat small (6 to 8-inch) round cake pan with no-stick cooking spray.
- COMBINE self-rising flour, sugar and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture is the size of peas. Stir in cream, then buttermilk (dough should look like cottage cheese).
- POUR all-purpose flour onto plate. With medium ice cream scoop or spoon, scoop biscuit-size lump of wet dough into the flour; sprinkle some flour over it to coat outside.
- PICK up dough with well-floured hands. Form into round shape while shaking off excess flour. Place in prepared pan. Repeat with rest of dough, pressing each biscuit against the other so they rise up and not spread.
- BAKE in center of oven 20-22 minutes or until lightly browned.
- BRUSH biscuits with melted butter. Cool 2 minutes in pan. Serve hot.

Self-rising flour is ideal for biscuit recipes because it ensures the correct amount of leavener is used, and that it's evenly distributed.
When making biscuits, pack vegetable shortening into a measuring cup so there are no air pockets. Cut it into the flour with a pastry blender, 2 knives, or a fork.
