Growing up, I remember every Sunday morning my mama would have a big pan of biscuits. I'm from a family of nine children. It was definitely a big pan. We would have gravy and sausage, and eggs. But I always remembered the biscuits being the best part. After I was grown I was at my mom's house and she made biscuits. I asked her if she would share her recipe with me. She pointed to a box of Jiffy mix. I was kind of shocked, I had always thought her biscuits were made from scratch. She explained that she had made them from scratch in the past but she had changed to Jiffy mix and no one noticed a difference.

Jiffy Mix- Jiffy All Purpose Baking Mix. There are different types of jiffy mix, make sure it's the all-purpose baking mix.
ButterMilk- The instructions on the Jiffy box only say milk. You want to use Buttermilk.
Salt- Add in just a pinch of salt. This isn't listed on the box either.
Butter- You can melt the butter or slice it for the tops of the biscuits.
Let's Get Baking
2 Cups Jiffy All Purpose Baking Mix
2/3 Cup Butter Milk
1 Tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Flour or Jiffy mix
Preheat oven to 450°. Combine Jiffy mix and salt in a mixing bowl. Slowly add buttermilk, you want to have a sticky mixture. On a flat surface, add flour (I sometimes use jiffy mix instead of flour both work the same). Pour biscuit dough onto the floured surface. Put a little flour on your hands to keep the biscuit dough from sticking to your hands. Knead dough until it can form a ball. Using hands flatten the dough. Cut biscuits into equal-sized shapes. Place into the pan, top with butter. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tops are golden.
Serve with white gravy, jelly, jam, or Chocolate gravy. (I never heard of chocolate gravy until meeting my husband. Stay tuned for a recipe.)
