Beautiful Biscuits – Better than KFC’s
By Gloria Pitzer
2/3 cup real buttermilk
1/3 cup real mayonnaise
2 1/2 cups Bisquick, plus a little extra
Melted butter (enough to brush 8 biscuit tops twice)
In a 1 1/2-qt mixing bowl, with an electric hand mixer on medium-speed, beat together the first three ingredients, adding the Bisquick a little at a time and working in the last cupful with a sturdy mixing spoon until you form a soft dough.
Dip your hands in a bit of extra Bisquick to divide and shape dough into 8 patties; making each about 1-inch thick, and placing them close together in a Pam-sprayed 9-inch or 10-inch Pyrex baking dish.
Using a pastry brush, wipe all the tops with a bit of melted butter. Bake at 400-degrees (F) for 25 minutes or until golden brown. At once, after removing from oven, wipe the tops in a bit of melted butter again.
Makes 8 biscuits, which freeze well for months!
