Two Peas and Their Pod: Recipe for Buttermilk Biscuits

Recipe for Buttermilk Biscuits



I am not a Southern gal, I grew up in Illinois and now live in Utah, but I do enjoy a good biscuit...and by good I mean tender, flaky, buttery, hot, melt in your mouth good! I love my biscuits with honey or homemade jam. My mouth is watering right now:)


I recently tried a recipe from Pinch My Salt. She really did her research on how to make the perfect buttermilk biscuit. I suggest you read this post! It was extremely helpful in my biscuit making adventure.

I followed all of the tips and tricks...used really cold bu
tter, used some cake flour, didn't twist when cutting, etc. I am glad I did because my biscuits were everything I wanted them to be..and then some!! If you are a biscuit lover, do your research and then get in the kitchen! You are going to love these!

You can find the reci
pe and tips here! ENJOY!

I grew up on biscuits - we had them for all three meals (or more!) of the day. They are my family's choice for dinner instead of your typical rolls. They are now my husband's favorite too (he didn't even know what a biscuit was when we first met!!). Now we will just have to get you some sausage gravy and you will be saying ya'll with the rest of us!

Dorie got me in the habit of using really cold butter for scones and pastry. I even freeze it if I am going to use the food processor.
I love buttermilk biscuits - yours sound divine!

Oh yay for your. I love biscuits.

I have yet to get the hang of biscuits. I've tried a few recipes, but none ever come out quite right. I will keep trying. I have nothing against biscuits in a can (and I see a bunch of culinary purists gasping in shock, putting their hands over their hearts, or wringing their hands) but I'd like to say I can do my own.
