Type of DishBiscuits

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

How to Make Buttermilk Biscuits

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Sift the dry ingredients in a large bowl and cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or with two knives until a coarse meal texture is obtained.

  3. Add buttermilk and knead lightly but thoroughly. The dough should be soft but not sticky. If it is, add a little more flour.

  4. Knead for 1 minute, wrap in foil or wax paper and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

  5. Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thick on a lightly floured surface and cut with a biscuit cutter. If you don't have one, a drinking glass of the desired diameter will work.

  6. Transfer biscuits to a dark baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 10 to 12 minutes.

I love homemade biscuits. I don't think it is just the amount of butter and buttermilk that makes these so light. I think it is the baking soda in addition to the buttermilk. Most homemade biscuits just call for baking powder. This calls for baking powder and baking soda. The baking soda will react with the buttermilk to give it a lighter texture.

I'm so happy to find this biscuit recipe. I've been making the copy of KFC cole slaw for years, but I didn't know the biscuit recipe was available. I love the buttery goodness of KFC biscuits so I will be making these soon. I even have biscuit cutters that have never been used!

A classic. This is going on my list for Thanksgiving!
