Old Fashioned Oil Biscuits (Foolproof).
This recipe for Old Fashioned Oil Biscuits is only one of two recipes I have for biscuits that have been foolproof for me. My cheese biscuits are the only other biscuit recipe that turns out for me. My sister can make the best buttermilk biscuits but I have always struggled to make biscuits that don’t turn out like hockey pucks that are flat and hard. This recipe is a classic and it is is easy. If I can make it then I consider it foolproof.
This recipe uses only basic ingredients which is a plus if you are like me and you haven’t been to the grocery store in a month.
Recipe makes 10-12 medium sized biscuits. We also cut the recipe in half to make small batches sometimes.
