I made these for my grandmother’s church group. Yup, that is how awesome these are… I served them to the BIGGEST biscuit critics ever (Hi grandma!). I felt like I was finally allowed to sit at the grown-up table.
I love these biscuits so much that I make different recipes JUST to top them with. I have served these with :
Mixed berry ginger jam
or good ol coconut oil scrambled egg.
These flaky buttermilk biscuits are a sure thing! Make them today and make my grandmother proud!Also tagged me in your pictures. I get a kick out of them and so does grandma. And i finally made a video guys! I hope you use it as a rough guide. Biscuit making is 1 part the recipe and another part confidence.
My top Buttermilk recipes:
Grandma’s Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespoon salted butter melted to brush on top
- Preheat oven to 425. Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Transfer to a food processor. Cut frozen butter into cubes and add to flour, then pulse 6 or 7 times until it looks like a loose crumble. Place the dough back in the bowl, add buttermilk and stir with a spatula until it forms a rough ball (don’t worry if it is a little sticky).
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it into a rough rectangle, about an inch thick. Fold it over and gently roll it down again. Repeat 6 times.
- Gently roll out the dough once more, so that it forms a rectangle. Cut dough into biscuits using a floured glass or biscuit cutter. Do not twist cutter when cutting; this will crimp the edges of the biscuit causing it not to rise. If you have scraps just reform a rectangle and cut additional biscuits.
- Place biscuits on a baking sheet and place in oven. Make sure they’re touching. Bake until golden brown, approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Serves 6 to 8. Brush on the melted butter and enjoy!
- NOTE: If you don’t have a food processor, you can cut butter into flour in the mixing bowl using a grater, fork or a pastry cutter.
