Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits

Friday, February 12, 2010

 This biscuit recipe is one I found over at Sister's Cafe that I'd been waiting to try for a long time and a  whole week of snow days was the perfect excuse.  These biscuits were light, perfectly flaky, and had an out-of-this-world flavor!    If you're looking for a good biscuit recipe I suggest you start right here.

The ingredients:  

2 cups flour
2-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
5 Tbs. chilled butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 Tbs. honey

Directions:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Chill 10 minutes.

 In a small bowl, combine buttermilk and honey, stirring with a whisk until well-blended.  Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture;

stir just until moist.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times.  Roll dough into a 1/2-inch thick 9x5-inch rectangle; dust top of dough with flour.  Fold dough crosswise into thirds (as if folding a piece of paper to fit into an envelope).  Reroll dough into a 1/2-inch thick 9x5-inch  rectangle; dust top of dough with flour.  Fll dough crosswise into thirds again; gently roll or pat to a 3/4-inch thickness.  Cut dough with a 1-3/4-inch biscuit cutter to form 10 dough rounds.  Place dough rounds, 1 inch apart, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 400 degree for 12 minutes or until golden.  Remove from pan; cool 2 minutes on wire racks.  Serve warm.  Enjoy!

I love what you're doing with your new site. Biscuits sound like a fun thing to make while being snowed in. I bet they were gone in record time though:D They look really tasty!
