Old Fashioned Cat Head Biscuits

These biscuits are sure to get your family up and going.


  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1-cup buttermilk
  • 1 lump of solid shortening


Begin by putting the flour in a large mixing bowl, push the flour to the sides of the bowl to form a depression in the center.

Add shortening (about the size of a walnut) pour a little buttermilk in the center and stir with a large mixing spoon.


After the shortening and the buttermilk are blended with the flour, add the remaining buttermilk, and continue blending to form the dough into a ball.

Place wax paper on a dough board, sprinkle enough flour to lightly coat the wax paper.

Place your dough on your wax paper/board and gently pat out the dough until it is about an inch and a half thick.

(recipe hint: The less you handle the dough, the fluffier your biscuits will be.)

Now to cut them out.

You can use a tin can for this, just cut out the top and bottom, and take the label off.

Place in a greased glass or metal Pan. Choose a baking pan that the biscuits will fit snug in with sides touching, this will help them rise

Pre heat oven to 400 degrees.

Place in the oven until light brown.

Make sure they are completely cooked all the way through.
