ROSEMARY BISCUITS

This biscuits are not as quick as the premade ones but oh so much better!

3 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening, chilled
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 tbsp chopped rosemary

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Set out a baking sheet or sheets to hold 20 biscuits.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt together well. Cut the shortening into the mixture until it resembles coarse meal.  Add the buttermilk, whipping cream, and rosemary; stir with a fork until moistened.

Turn dough out on a floured surface and knead 3 or 4 times.  Roll dough to a 1-inch thickness, cut with a floured  2-inch biscuit cutter or glass.  Place the biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Note:  These biscuits are great for making sausage sandwiches.
