These Perfect Buttermilk Biscuits are a family secret!
(Sorry Dad, not so much now, I had to share the secret with all my friends!)
My dad has been making these biscuits for over 40 years!
(Some perfect recipes just stand the test of time)
They were a family breakfast staple at our house, and I've kept up the tradition in my home.
They taste SO MUCH BETTER than premade biscuits in a tube, and SO EASY!
I started making these a few years ago and quickly realized why my dad made them so often.
THEY ARE SOOOO EASY and take next to no time to bake!
Biscuits and Gravy
Biscuits with Honey
Biscuits with Jam
Biscuits with Soup
The list goes on and on.........
Wow your family with these PERFECT Buttermilk Biscuits for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner!
(But don't tell them how easy they are. Make them think you slaved for an hour or two.)
Aren't they GORGEOUS!?!
Perfect Buttermilk Biscuits
Preheat your oven to 450'
In a bowl place:
2 c. Flour
4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Cream of Tartar (Makes them SOOO SOFT!)
2 tsp. Sugar
1/2 c. Soft Butter
Cut ingredients until nice and crumbly.
2/3 c. Buttermilk (I always make my own with milk and a little bit of vinegar. If using "real" buttermilk you may need to use 1/2 c.)
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
Mix to make your dough.
Place your dough on a floured surface. **DO NOT KNEAD!*** There is not any yeast. Kneading will make the biscuits HARD!
Flatten the dough with your hands or softly with a rolling pin, whatever floats your boat.
Make your dough about 1-1 1/2 inches thick.
Use a cup/glass you drink from or a 1/2 c. measuring cup to cut your biscuits out!
This recipe always makes 8 perfect biscuits!
Our family always fights over the "scrap biscuit" (the last biscuit made with just the left over dough pieces) for some reason it always tastes the best!
Place your biscuits on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 450' for 10-12 minutes.
Serve warm! Mmmmm..........
