Yesterday, I tried making some buttermilk biscuits. They ended up tasting pretty good. And I would like to share with you one way of making them. This recipe can make up to twelve biscuits.
- 2½ cups of unbleached all-purpose flour.
- 2½ teaspoons of baking powder.
- ½ teaspoon of baking soda.
- ½ teaspoon of salt.
- 6 tablespoons of cold unsalted butter (I only had salted butter, so I planned to use less salt).
- ¾ of buttermilk.
- Set up a rack in the middle of the oven and set the oven to 450 degrees.
- Put all of the dry ingredients in a big plastic mixing bowl (I accidentally used to much salt, but it wasn’t enough salt to ruin the recipe).
- Massage the butter into the dry ingredients.
- Add the buttermilk and stir the mixture with a fork (I had to use a little more buttermilk to get the little bits together with the rest of the dough).
- Make a clean and clear space on the kitchen counter and flour it.
- Put the dough on the floured part of the counter and fold the dough onto itself a few times.
- Roll out the dough so that it’s half an inch thick.
- Use a cookie cutter to cut out circles of dough.
- Place the cutout biscuits on a pan with parchment paper.
- Place the pan inside the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
- When done, get the biscuits out of the oven and let them cool.
- Repeat steps 7-11 until all of the dough is used.
That’s how I made some buttermilk biscuits. I hope that you’ll find them as good as I found them.
