Classic Buttermilk Biscuits


Buttermilk Biscuits is that one breakfast item besides bacon that I’ll just eat, and eat, and eat. Until I become Fat Bastard from Austin Powers yelling for things to “get in my belly!!”

I’m sure my wife is proud of those moments, love you babe. My love of buttermilk biscuits is thanks to the food chain Arby’s biscuits. Those are by far the best biscuits I’ve ever had. My local Arby’s stopped carrying breakfast. Since then I’ve been trying to fill that void. In my eyes nothing is more stupendous than a perfectly flaky biscuit covered in white pepper/sausage gravy with Tabasco sauce. Mmm my mouth just started watering.

I have been hunting for anything that would satisfy that craving. These do the job! Filled with goodness and a classic taste from down south. I even went old school and used a glass instead of a biscuit cutter!! These are flaky, with pockets of buttery goodness. The buttermilk gives these biscuits that unique flavor that I just can’t get enough of! I was honestly shocked with how easy biscuits are to make. I would say that if you don’t like getting your hands dirty, I’d get a pastry blender or food processor to blend the butter.

Ingredients!!

3 cups flour

1 3/4 cups buttermilk, cold

1/2 cup butter, cold
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425

  2. In a large sized bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and the salt. (If you don’t like to use Salt, or love to feel free to change the amount.) Just be aware it will change the taste.

  3. Cube butter into tablespoon increments then fourth those. Using your fingers combine mixture until it looks like a crumble. – You can substitute a pastry blender or food processor if wanted. With a food processor you don’t need to cut up the butter!

  4. Make a well in the center of the mixture inside the large bowl and pour in the buttermilk, using your hands or instrument of choice to mix until a very sticky dough is created.

  5. Four a surface to put the dough onto, the place onto surface. Fold the dough over itselfs 5 to 7 times.

  6. Make sure the outside is smooth and has flour on it. Add more if needed. The goal is still to have a sticky center.

  7. Pat dough out until it is one inch thick.

  8. Using a 2 inch biscuit cutter, or a glass glass start creating your biscuits.

  9. Place biscuits on a pan lined with parchment paper, make sure they don’t touch each other!!

  10. Continue to make biscuits reforming the dough until you can’t anymore.

  11. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown!

  12. Optional but, you can brush them with 4 tablespoons of melted for that extra pop!

Enjoy these little delights!
