I really appreciated the simplicity of this month's challenge recipe. I chose to make buttermilk biscuits, as this is the type of biscuit I grew up with, living in the South. These biscuits are light and fluffy, and take less than 30 minutes to prepare!
|Mix dough, then fold and turn 3-4 times|
|Cut dough into 6 biscuits|
|Brush with buttermilk|
|Enjoy while warm!|
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter, frozen and finely diced
1/2 cup buttermilk
Buttermilk, for glazing tops of biscuits
1. Preheat oven to 475 F (240 C).
2. Triple sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture, until it forms pea-sized pieces. Add buttermilk and mix until it forms a sticky dough.
3. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead 4-5 times. Flour the top of the dough, and fold and turn dough 3-4 times.
4. Pat dough into a 4 x 6 inch rectangle. Use a sharp knife to cut dough into 6 biscuits. Brush the tops of the biscuits with buttermilk.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until biscuits have risen and have lightly browned.
6. Transfer to cooling rack and enjoy while warm!
