It’s Buttermilk Biscuit Day!
Yes, it is gets it’s own food holiday on the food holiday calendar, deservedly so!
What are they, you say? Try this definition of Biscuits.
I usually only make these for special occasions for others, as I know better than to make a random batch. I could probably eat the lot of them as they are just so buttery fluffy good.
So far the recipe I have found that is the easiest and tastes pretty damn yummy goes something like this…
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- Heat oven to 450°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. Place flour in large bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk; stir with fork until soft dough forms and mixture begins to pull away from sides of bowl.
- On lightly floured surface, knead dough just until smooth. Roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with floured 2-inch round cutter. Place biscuits cookie sheet.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet.
- Serve warm
Here are some others that look good too:
And if that isn’t enough, let’s try some images of the buttery biscuits. Drool at them here: Buttermilk Biscuits.
