Buttermilk Biscuits

 

This is a really easy recipe for kids and adults to make for a quick weekend breakfast. You can add herbs, grated cheddar cheese, bacon or ham to the recipe to make them more interesting. Although, there is nothing like a plain hot biscuit, straight out of the oven with more butter and jam! They also great for a ham or turkey sandwich.
We are still practicing the podcasts! Watch at your own risk!

Buttermilk Biscuits

2 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Sugar
1 stick Unsalted Butter, cold and cut in 1/2 inch cubes
1 cup Buttermilk

Preheat oven 375 degrees
Place Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt and Sugar in a bowl. Wisk to combined. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until mixture looks like course meal. Pour the buttermilk into the butter and flour and stir. DO NOT OVER WORK OR BISCUITS WILL BE FLAT. You want to see chunks of butter in the dough. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and cut using a two inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush tops of biscuits with a little extra buttermilk and place in oven for 15-20 mins or until tops are golden brown.
