Biscuits are not something that I grew up eating. The first biscuit I had came from a fast food joint. And it was a buttery hockey puck.
This is what I make now:
Yohboh had a co-worker come by and he ate three of them, standing up.
The thing I did differently this time is I stuck the whole bowl of dry ingredients in the freezer before I added the buttermilk. Made a much flakier biscuit. Will I do it every time? Probably not. But it will be nice to do the night before for an easier Sunday morning big breakfast.
2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons butter, cold
One cup of buttermilk, cold
Combine the first four ingredients in a large bowl. I like to use my hands.
Then I add the butter. I combine it until the buttery floury stuff looks like cornmeal.
I stick this in the freezer indefinitely.
Then I heat the oven to 450.
I poured the buttermilk into the floury stuff. Combine until it is a very loose dough. Put it on a floured surface and I like to cut out 8-10 biscuits with a sharp knife.
Bake 15-20 minutes until they look like what is up there.
Kidlet ate two of these with LOTS of butter.
