Buttermilk Biscuits

As my bestfriend Duckie says, I’m a bread monster just like her. I love anything involving bread. Biscuits, pasta, bread. Anything. I’ll consume it. Slightly burnt? I’m your gal. Fresh out of your oven? I’ll beat you to it. Leftovers from last night’s dinner? I’ll eat it before you wake up.

These? These are my new go to buttermilk biscuits. Tender, flaky, delicious. Everything a biscuit should be. When butter is put on them right out of the oven (held in a paper towel so I don’t burn myself) I’m transported to biscuit heaven. They’re good cold and good the next day if they last that long. What’s not to love? Go, make these for dinner tonight. Eat the whole batch. I’ve made these three times now and every time they come out perfect. And I fight the urge to eat them all before anyone else gets them. I’m so kind, aren’t I?

From Dorie Greenspan

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bakin soda
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut into 12 pieces
3/4 cup cold buttrmilk

1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Whisk the flour, baking powder, soda, sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Drop in the butter and, with your fingers or pastry blender (I used our kitchen aid to do this), rub it into the flour until you’ve got crumbs – some the size of flakes, some like  baby peas. Add th ebuttermilk and stir; the mixture will be very stick.

2. Reach into ht bowl and knead the dough gently 3 or 4 times (again, I used the kitchen aid for this  turning it on for a second then off. Repeat 3 or 4 times). Turn it out onto a floured surface and roll  or pat it into a circle about 1/2-inch thick. Use a 2 inch biscuit cutter to cut out as many biscuits as you can; gather your scraps and cut out more biscuits. You could also roll out the dough and then cut it with a pizza cutter into squares, although I haven’t done this so I’m not sure if you’d want to roll it out a bit thinner. 

3. Transfer the biscuits to a foil-lined baking sheet and bake 15 to 18 minutes or until puffed and golden. Cool 5 minutes. Serve split.

Cool for 5 minutes? Really? Yeah, they don’t generally last that long.
