Flaky buttermilk biscuits are a breakfast tradition in the South, and they’re easy to make at home too!
Here’s how to make perfect buttermilk biscuits every time.
All-purpose flour Baking powder Salted butter Honey Buttermilk Heavy cream
Pulse the dry ingredients and cold butter in a food processor until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Pour the buttermilk and honey into the bowl.
Stir, then knead the dough with your hands or a rubber spatula. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and pat until it’s 3/4-inch thick.
Use a biscuit cutter or round cookie cutter to cut 3-inch circles in the dough. Place the biscuits in the greased skillet, then brush them with the cream.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Let biscuits cool in the skillet for about 10 minutes. Then, pull the biscuits apart and serve them warm.
Let me tell you, nothing compares to the taste and texture of homemade buttermilk biscuits. Not only are they delicious, they’re also incredibly easy to make.
You can customize them with herbs and cheese and they freeze well too, so you can always have some on hand when that biscuit craving strikes.
