Fluffy Biscuits

Hi Mama

How can I get my biscuits to rise up to be fluffy and soft..?
mine are hard on the bottom and on top sorta flat... I don't know what I'm doing wrong.. I cook them at 425 degrees is the heat to high..?I use self rising flour, buttermilk and Crisco lard i brush the tops with milk and put the thumbprint in the center.

At one time,I used to use this flour it was called Southern Biscuits formula L I bought it at Walmart but now they don't carry it.. those biscuits were great all i did was add butter milk..and they turned out pretty good...

My husband loves the gravy and sausage I do good at that... you have so many delicious dishes I'm going to try so many of them...
thanks hope you can tell me what I am doing wrong with the biscuits.

Let me see if I can help

First, preheat you oven to 500 degrees F. The high heat will cause the biscuits to rise quickly.

Second, be sure to use a good quality soft winter wheat flour like White Lily. Not all flours are the same. Don't overwork your dough. You only need to knead it 8 or 10 times.

Third, make sure that when you are cutting out your biscuits that you cut straight down, being careful not to twist the cutter until you have cut all the way through the dough.

Also, brush the tops with melted butter instead of milk.

I hope this solves your problem!
