Hardee’s Biscuit Recipe
What you need to make 12 biscuits:
- ¼ cup of sugar
- 5 cups self-rising flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup vegetable shortening
- 2 1/2 cups buttermilk, chilled
- Salted butter, for brushing
Hardee’s Biscuit Directions
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Start warming butter on the oven.
Start mixing the dry ingredients – sugar, self-rising flour, and baking powder into the sifter.
Add the shortening to the dry mixture.
Using your hand, make a well-like shape in the center of the mixture and pour the cold buttermilk into the well. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula and start combining the wet and dry ingredients.
Place the dough out onto a floured countertop or flat surface. Roll the dough out with the rolling pin until you have a one-inch thick circle. Use a floured 2-inch round cookie cutter to punch out as many biscuits as possible.
Transfer the biscuits to the baking sheet and position them side by side. Then brush the tops of the biscuits with the melted butter that’s been warming on the oven.
Bake them for 10 to 15 minutes. You’ll know they’re ready when they turn to a light golden brown color. When they’re done, remove them from the oven and cool for a while.
