Easy Buttermilk Biscuits

1966

Here is a easy buttermilk biscuits recipe anyone can make. Since I had made some butter the other day I still had the half quart of buttermilk sitting in the fridge, so I figured I better use it before it goes bad, so I assembled my ingredients, buttermilk, flour, kosher salt, butter, baking powder, sugar

Image

I dumped 5 cups of flour, a quarter cup of sugar, 1 tbsp of kosher salt and a quarter cup of baking powder in a bowl and mixed well

Image

I set my cheese grater on the bowl

Image

and took a half pound of butter and grated about 2/3rds of it into the bowl

Image

I stirred it well and then used my hands to really incorporate the butter into the flour, squeezing any large pieces

Image

I dumped it the half quart of buttermilk I had

Image

and stirred it up into a stiff dough

Image

I floured up my cutting board

Image

and dumped the dough out and formed a 10×8 rectangle roughly

Image

I cut it into 8 pieces

Image

and set them on a lined sheet tray about 2 inches apart

Image

I preheated the oven to 400 degrees and set the biscuits in the oven, I then put the last third of butter in a saucepan with a 1/3 cup of honey

Image

I turned the saucepan on low and let the butter melt

Image

after 20 minutes I pulled the biscuits out of the oven and brushed them with the butter

Image

I stuck them back in the oven and 8-10 minutes later they were done

Image

luckily there was just enough of the honey butter to test one, mmmm, I should make strawberry shortcake with them
