Biscuits are life!!
I made apple butter a few weeks ago and wanted to share my favorite easy as pie recipe for biscuits:) In that former recipe I used my biscuits to make the apple butter look good. Now, I am using this bacon + maple syrup to make my biscuits look good;) The trickery!!
I love my vintage biscuit cutter.. and that dough. Life is good when I have my hands in dough and flour up to my elbows.
A biscuit that you really just want to bury your face in..
Fabulous Kitchen Tip:
Always use super cold or frozen butter when making this recipe. Also cold, cold flour. I always keep it in the freezer. And use cold milk/buttermilk.
- 1/2 cup butter cold & cubed
- 2 cups self-rising flour cold(i keep in freezer)
- 3/4 cup buttermilk cold
- 3 TBSP Butter melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter and flour cake pan or cast iron skillet.
Measure flour into bowl of stand mixer. Add cubed butter into flour.
Using paddle attachment mix on low speed until butter is in pea size chunks.
Add buttermilk and mix until dough comes together. It should be a shaggy dough.
Scrape out of bowl onto a floured wax paper. Form into a ball shape.
Roll out to about 1 inch. Fold in half and then fold in half again. Roll out to about 1/2 inch.
Using biscuit cutter or a glass cut out biscuits. Make 1 layer around the pan and then cut out and stack another round on top of the first layer. Press down slightly. This makes the biscuits extra thick and fluffy!
Bake 15 to 20 minutes until tops are slightly golden brown. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter immediately. Serves 8 if doubled and 16 if single.
