I never have buttermilk on hand when I want homemade flaky Southern biscuits. This one ingredient makes a perfect substitute.

 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1 tablespoon baking powder
 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt

In a medium bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. Add in the butter and shortening and mix together with your hands, until it is incorporated.

2

In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt and milk. Add it to the other bowl, and combine with your hands.

3

Dump the dough onto the counter. Do not knead it. Press the dough together into disc about 1-inch thick. Using a glass or two-inch biscuit cutter, cut out 6-8 circles. You can press the edge pieces together to reform the disc, as needed. Place the biscuits onto a lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

TIPS

You can also bake these on the grill over indirect heat. To bake in a 12-inch Dutch oven, place 20 briquettes on the lid and six under the oven.

You can add chopped fresh herbs or 1/3 cup shredded cheese to the batter for a little variety.

I love homemade flaky, Southern biscuits with grilled steak or sandwiched with leftover barbecue and a fried egg.
