Biscuits

Uncategorized Sep 14, 2021

Biscuits ingredients:

  • 6 Tbsp butter, COLD (have it in the freezer for 30-minutes before getting started)
  • 2 C. All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 2/3 C. Buttermilk

Instructions:

  1. Using a food processor or a box grater, shred your very cold butter into fine shreds (it should resemble shredded cheese). Place in a bowl or container, covered, and set back in the freezer while you do the other steps.
  2. Preheat your oven to 425F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Combine your flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir until homogenous.
  4. Add your chilled butter and stir with your hands until you get a crumbly texture.
  5. Pour in your buttermilk and stir with a spatula until just combined. This will still be lumpy, and that's how it's supposed to be.
  6. Dump your dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently press it together until you have a shaggy ball. Using your finger tips, flatten the dough into a disc roughly 1in thick and fold half of it on top of itself (like a dough taco). Rotate 90 degrees and then flatten and fold 4-5 more times, rotating 90 degrees every time.
  7. Flatten your dough with your finger tips again (aiming for ~1 in. thickness) and use a biscuit cutter (I said 2 2/3in in the video, but I think that was too small. Go with a 3 - 3 1/2 in cutter instead) to cut as many biscuits as you can, pressing straight down and avoiding any twisting motion. Placing the cut biscuits onto a baking sheet ~1/2 in apart from each other. Work the excess pieces of dough back together and cut as many biscuits as you can from this and place them on your baking sheet. You should have between 5-7 biscuits.
  8. Bake at 425F for 12-minutes.
