Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

We all know and love the fluffy buttermilk biscuits that you can get a Bob Evan's or even the Pillsbury brand. I set out years ago to recreate these amazing biscuits (no they were not amazing because of the quality in the ingredients, just amazing with the taste and fluffy ness). Over the years I have changed the recipe a bunch of times, but this is the best results I have come up with; it is perfect! I love making these, baking all the way and freezing them for later use.

We just moved and do not have all the space we did before, nor a deep freezer so I have to be cautious what I freeze as we won't have the space. So I make these fresh every time because they are that easy and that fast to make up! Give these biscuits a try and you will never go back! These biscuits go amazingly with my homemade sausage gravy!

You Will Need:

2 Cups Organic All Purpose Flour
6 tbsp Organic Butter, cold
1/4 tsp Baking Soda (Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp Real Salt
1 tbsp Baking Powder (non-gmo and aluminum free)

Add all dry ingredients into a big glass bowl, or food processor; mix together

Cut butter, making sure it is really cold, I put mine in the freezer for a couple minutes

Put butter in flour mixture

Using your hands (as I did) or food processor, work the butter into the flour until fine crumbs (almost resembling corn meal)

Looking like corn meal a bit!

Start adding your buttermilk, I use homemade (here), a little at a time, you may not need it all, and you might, it all depends. Today I needed all the buttermilk. Work until all flour is mixed in, it will be soft but not sticky

So soft!!!

Using your hands, press the dough out, gently, until about 1/2 inch thick; who are we kidding I have no clue how 1/2 thick looks, I just eye ball the size I would want to eat

Using a cup, cut out pieces

Place 1' apart, and bake 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes; I only ever do 10 minutes

YUMMERS! Do they not look just like Bob Evan's!
