Can I just repeat myself for a second? I LOVE buttermilk! It’s super easy to make and really adds a nice dimension of flavor to everything I’ve been trying it in.
Buttermilk biscuits are my newest discovery. I’ve never really been able to make good biscuits. After many recipe fails, I finally stuck with cream biscuits. Because they were easy to make. But, they just didn’t scream BISCUIT to me like I thought they should.
So I kept searching. And I found this. A recipe for buttermilk biscuits.
I tweaked it a bit. Subbed half white whole-wheat flour. Decreased the salt to 1/4 tsp. and used salted butter.
They were delicious! And fluffy. I like fluffy biscuits.
To make the whole mixing butter step in easier, I grated the cold butter. I just set the large hole grater on top of my bowl and grate away. The little uniform chunks fall neatly into the bowl and a quick mix with the spoon keeps me from having to break out the pastry blender. I don’t like that thing!
Since I’m still trying to get used to this blogging thing, I forgot to take a picture. Silly me. So sorry. Will fix that next time I bake them. Until then…just imagine a beautiful fluffy biscuit with butter on top. And raspberry jam! Yum!
