Who doesn't love a good biscuit, there so versatile. Great with stews, soups or fried food and gravy. They also bring back memories of arriving to grandmas and I knew as soon as I smelt the biscuits it was stew night.
As an adult now theres no more hoping they'll be made when I get home, but luckily they're not that hard to make. The big no-nos are how you add the butter and overworking the dough. Well lets jump into it.
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 5 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 cup buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 375°F-400°F and grease a baking sheet for later.
- Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt.
- Next we need to add butter theres a few methods. One is to cut the butter up into small pieces and blend in flour with a fork or pastry blender. Another way is to use a cheese grater and shred into the flour.
- Now create a well in center of mixture and pour in buttermilk. Mix just until combined.
- Flour your counter and pour mixture onto floured surface. Only work with the dough as much as needed, then roll out about inch or two thick.
- Cut out circles about 2-3 inch diameter. If you want to you can brush the top with butter.
- Now place on baking sheet (they can be fairly close together) and cook for about 10 minutes or golden on top.
