Buttery Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttery Buttermilk Biscuits

I finally made biscuits that were light, fluffy, a little buttery and, well, edible!!!  I was so excited I just about drove my oldest by bonkers while riding in the truck yesterday talking about my biscuits!  It was quite an accomplishment for me since I am a Southerner, coming from a line of great women that made the BEST biscuits and couldn’t make a descent biscuit.  Here they are…what do you think?

Buttery Buttermilk Biscuits

  • Makes 9 to 12  biscuits depending on size
  • 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 Biscuit Mix
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, frozen or very cold
  • 1/3 cup club soda
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Put 2 1/4 cups Bisquick in a large bowl.

Grate butter over biscuit mix

Mix together fork(s) until mix resembles coarse sand.

Add club soda and buttermilk.

Mix until a soft ball forms.

Turn out on a surface lightly sprinkled with Bisquick.

Knead until smooth, adding more Bisquick if needed, usually between 7-10 times.

Roll or pat into a rectangle at least 3/4″.  The thicker the dough when cut, the higher the biscuit.

Cut with a biscuit or cookie cutter.  Or, like me, a canning jar.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7 to 10 minutes.  Until lightly browned.
