Easy No Shortening Biscuits

These are really great, especially considering how easy they are. They are surprisingly flaky for a biscuit that has no shortening. My “go to” recipe for biscuits now!

You can make them even easier by just dropping on the cookie sheet instead of rolling out! Brush a little butter on top to give it a little extra flavor and color.

Easy No Shortening Biscuits


2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄3 cup oil
2⁄3 cup milk


Mix dry ingredients.

Put oil in measuring cup and add milk. Do not stir. Add to dry ingredients.

Mix lightly to moisten ingredients and knead one or two times to form ball. Roll out between two sheets of plastic wrap to about 1/2″ thick. Cut into 2″ biscuits.

Bake on an ungreased pan at 475F for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned.

Great bread! Tasted just like Outbacks. The most delicious bread I have ever made. Also my first successful loaf after attempting to make bread over 20 times.
