Buttermilk Biscuits

May 18, 2010 at 1:18 pm 1 comment



A somewhat lighter version

2 cups AP flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon chilled butter, margarine and/or shortening
3/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450°F

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in fat until the mixture looks like coarse meal (I use a food processor)
Add buttermilk and stir until moist
Turn dough onto floured surface and knead lightly 4 or 5 times
Roll dough to about 1/2 inch thickness and cut out biscuits with 2 1/2 inch cutter
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden

I’ve exchanged 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup AP flour. A little less tender, but just a bit healthier.

And instead of cutting the biscuits out with a floured cutter, I’ve gotten into the habit of patting the dough into a square that’s a 1/2 inch thick (more or less), and cutting into nine even biscuits. Separate slightly for baking. No waste!

#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
