The Most Mouthwatering Biscuits Ever...

Hi everyone! I'm Amy from The Little Farm Diary, and I'm so happy to be back over here sharing with all you sweet Blissful And Domestic readers. I just love hanging out with y'all every month! Happy March by the way!

The Most Mouthwatering Biscuits Ever...

I've been working over at my house on perfecting my biscuit recipe and I've finally got it and I couldn't wait to share it with y'all today. There are so many different recipes for biscuits and if you can believe it, books devoted to nothing but biscuit making, it's serious stuff in the south y'all! All I can say is that down here, biscuit making is a big thing. No southern plate is complete without a light and flaky biscuit on the side. So, I've been working for a bit now, and I think I've finally mastered 'The Biscuit'.

The How To:

Biscuits can be ornery little critters and biscuit bakers have their secrets for baking the best, most mouthwatering biscuits around. I'm going to share a few secrets with y'all that really will make a big difference in your end result.

  1. The Flour. Yes, it does make a difference what you use. I recommend White Lily All Purpose Flour.
  2. Chill the bowl and pastry cutter.
  3. Cut butter into really small pieces and they must be COLD.
  4. Work dough with your hands and only until just blended- no over mixing here- that dough must stay cold.
  5. When cutting out your biscuits, never twist with the cutter. This closes off the sides and doesn't allow for nice big fluffy biscuit.
  6. A hot oven is key.

Ingredients:

2 cups White Lilly All Purpose Flour plus a little for rolling out dough
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. fine salt
4 Tbsp. cold butter {unsalted} cut into little pieces
3/4 to 1 cup  buttermilk

The Most Mouthwatering Biscuits Ever...

Instructions:
  1. Pre-heat oven to 450*.  
  2. In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. 
  3. Using your pastry cutter, cut in the small pieces of butter until you have a coarse meal texture. 
  4. Pour in the buttermilk and mix just until combined. 
  5. Now turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to a 1/2 inch thickness.
  6. Cut rounds of dough with a biscuit cutter or edge of a drinking glass, remembering to cut straight down- no twisting
  7. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

And there you have it y'all. Practice makes perfect with biscuits, but it's so worth it! A hot biscuit right out of the oven smothered in butter, oh my goodness, all kinds of amazing. Thank y'all so much for spending some time with me today and enjoy those biscuits!

XO Amy

  2. Biscuits... oh so wonderful.. Biscuits are a big part of out daily meals.. [Hubby would prefer EVERY day.lol---but, I like cornbread too..so we have to take turns.lol]
    My recipe is really similar to yours...But, when biscuits are getting close to being done, I pull them out, and take my stick butter/margarine and rub liberally over the top.. They are really buttery and good..[I didn't say, waist friendly.ha]
    thanks for sharing.
