Buttermilk Biscuits

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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.

Directions:

  1. Set up a rack in the middle of the oven and set the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. 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).
  3. Massage the butter into the dry ingredients.
  4. 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).
  5. Make a clean and clear space on the kitchen counter and flour it.
  6. Put the dough on the floured part of the counter and fold the dough onto itself a few times.
  7. Roll out the dough so that it’s half an inch thick.
  8. Use a cookie cutter to cut out circles of dough.
  9. Place the cutout biscuits on a pan with parchment paper.
  10. Place the pan inside the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  11. When done, get the biscuits out of the oven and let them cool.
  12. Repeat steps 7-11 until all of the dough is used.
  13. Enjoy!

That’s how I made some buttermilk biscuits. I hope that you’ll find them as good as I found them.
