Easy Buttermilk Biscuits with Chocolate Gravy

Ingredients for Biscuits:
· 2 cups self-rising flour (recommended White Lily)
· ¼ cup shortening
· ½ to ¾ cup milk

Ingredients for Chocolate Gravy:

· ¼ cup butter
· ½ cup sugar
· 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
· 1/3 cup natural sweetened cocoa powder
· 2 ½ cups milk
· 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions for Biscuits:

1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees and lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
2. Place flour into mixing bowl and cut in shorting with a pastry blender or fork until well incorporated. Stir in just enough milk until dough leaves the sides of the bowl.
3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead two or three times. Roll dough out to ½ inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter or small glass that has been dipped in flour. Place biscuits with sides touching onto prepared baking sheet.
4. Bake 8—10 minutes or until golden brown.

Directions for Chocolate Gravy:

1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add sugar, flour and cocoa, stirring to combine.
2. Add milk and vanilla, whisking until no lumps remain. Simmer until thickened, about 4 minutes. Serve hot over biscuits.
