I have tried for years to make perfect bisuits. I never seemed to succeed until I found this recipe!! Let me know what you think.
1/2 cup(s) unsalted butter
2 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon(s) baking powder
1 teaspoon(s) salt
1 cup(s) cold buttermilk
2 tablespoon(s) cold buttermilk
1 tablespoon(s) melted butter
DIRECTIONS Heat oven to 475 degrees F. Cut butter into small cubes and freeze 15 minutes. Stir dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Cut in butter using either a pastry blender, two knives, or your fingers until mixture resembles a coarse meal.
Stir in buttermilk using a fork just until dough forms. Knead 3 to 4 turns on a lightly floured surface and pat into a 7- by 10-inch rectangle. Cut out biscuits using a 3-inch cutter (gathering scraps until all dough is used).
Place 2 inches apart on a baking pan. Brush tops with melted butter.
Bake on top shelf of oven 16 to 18 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
TIPS & TECHNIQUESOut of buttermilk? Use "soured" milk instead. For this recipe, combine 1 tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar with 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon milk. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes, or until it begins to thicken.
