How to Make Fluffy KFC Biscuits

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
    Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cut in the Shortening:
    Add the cold shortening to the flour mixture.
    Use a pastry cutter or two knives to cut the shortening into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add Milk:
    Pour in the milk and stir until the dough just comes together. Do not overmix.
  5. Knead the Dough:
    Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
    Knead gently a few times until smooth.
  6. Cut the Biscuits:
    Roll out the dough to about 1/2-inch thickness.
    Use a biscuit cutter or a round glass to cut out biscuits.
    Place the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, close together for soft sides or spaced apart for crispier edges.
  7. Bake:
    Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. Brush with Butter:
    Remove from the oven and immediately brush the tops with melted butter.
  9. Serve:
    Serve warm and enjoy!
