Buttermilk Biscuits

There’s nothing like a lazy Sunday morning with the smell of freshly baked buttermilk biscuits permeating the house.  This buttermilk biscuit recipe is easy to make and the biscuits are so fluffy, moist and delicious.

Pre-heat the over to 450 degrees.

Gather up your ingredients.

Buttermilk Biscuit Ingredients

Add the dry ingredients to a food processor, top with butter, and pulse for just a few seconds so the butter incorporates a bit.

Cut Butter in Food Processor

Slowly add the buttermilk and mix just until the batter comes together.  Do not over-mix as this will make a tough biscuit.  You want small little specks of butter sprinkled throughout.  I thought mine looked a bit like ice cream when it was mixed.

Process Dough Until Smooth

Sprinkle a bit of flour on the area where you will want to flatten the dough.  Just use your hands and flatten out to about 1/2″ thick.  Use a biscuit cutter or even a coffee mug, whatever works to give you the size of biscuit you’d like.

Use Biscuit Cutter

Lay the cut biscuit dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.  This batch perfectly made 9 biscuits.

Biscuits on Parchment Paper
