Never in my wildest dream that baking buttermilk biscuits would be that easy. few days prior to making this, I always though making biscuits would be that hard..more like a day’s worth of work. Well, I was wrong! It only takes 30 minutes. I only need three ingredients.
Yup thats right. Only 3 ingredients to make those delicious biscuits.
2 1/4 cup of Self-rising Flour (this is very important.. do not use all purpose flour!)
One stick of butter (real one)
1 1/4 cup of buttermilk
Direction from a book called Southern Plate from Christy Jordan
Preheat the oven to 450’F and grease a baking sheet. PLace the flour in a large bowl. Cut the butter in with a long-tinted fork until crumbly (I used my hand). Cover and place in refrigerator for 10 minutes. Slowly pour in the buttermilk and stir just unitl moistened.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead three or four times with your hands (treat it with love!), adding flour as needed to prevent sticking. With well-floured hands, pat the dough out into a rectangle about 3/4 inch thick. Fold each side over into the center as if folding a letter. Repeat two more times, beginning with patting the dough out
Pat the dough out a final time until it is 1/2 inch thick. Cut a biscuit with cutter dipped in flour and place the biscuits on he baking sheet with the sides touching. ake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Brush the tops with melted butter.
