Grandma’s Southern Biscuits

I am drooling just thinking about writing what I want to say in this post. I mean look at these things:


As you may have heard I spent Thanksgiving in Kentucky with a lot of my family. My Grandma Jennifer and Papa Steve live in a very small town- not only is it along the border of Tennessee but also the central and eastern times zones. So close in fact when you go to Walmart you switch times. Along with getting the time together,Ā  I love going down there for these biscuits!


My cousin, Jennifer, has been making the biscuits for breakfast the past few times I go down and she graciously allowed me to officially note how they have been making them all these years. Something about the White Lily self-rising flour makes these biscuits different than any others that I have ever been able to make before. The best part is the biscuits only use three ingredients. Quick, easy, homemade and delicious all in one.


Enjoy these bad boys with white gravy, butter, jelly, or my personal favorite- HONEY! Check out the recipe down below! Don’t freak out that there aren’t any measurements. I promise you won’t need them šŸ˜‰


Grandma’s Southern Biscuits
makes about 15 biscuits



  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  • Put about 4 cups of flour in a bowl.
  • Scoop about 2 handfuls of Crisco from the container. Pinch into the flour until its crumbly. Add ingredients where is necessary.
  • Once the flour and crisco is crumbly add about a cup and half of butter milk to the middle of the bowl. Use a spoon to incorporate it throughout the mixture. Here is what it should look like:biscuits6biscuits5
  • Grease your cast iron skilletĀ with crisco. Make them look like this:biscuits7
  • Flour your hands well! Grab a handful of the dough and toss to form a ball lightly covered in flour and place into that cast iron skillet like sobiscuits4biscuits3
  • Bake about 15 minutes until golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack and then enjoy!

Hope you love them with your family as much as I do with mine!
