Yummy Time: Bojangles Biscuit Recipe

Well, you know I think I'm Betty Crocker and Martha Stewart's god child, so I'm always baking. At least twice a week.... Here is the recipe that I used to make Bojangles yummy biscuits! Had to have some mouth watering biscuits to soak up my stewed fish broth (yeah, I'm Bahamian).

2 cups self rising flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons confectioners sugar

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening (such as Crisco)

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Melted butter (about 1/4 cup)

Stir together the flour, baking powder & 10x sugar. Cut in the shortening until pieces are about the size of grains of rice. Stir in the buttermilk (you may need less buttermilk; start with 3/4 cup and add more as needed). Knead a few times, roll out on a floured board or counter top to 3/4-inch thickness. Be careful not to work dough too much or add too much flour, or you'll have dry biscuits. Cut with an oversized biscuit cutter (about 3-inches). Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake about 12 minutes in a preheated 450 degree oven.
