I’m prepping for the big day by trying my hand at these buttermilk biscuits and I’m slightly annoyed that I still can’t seem to bake a fucking thing without flour getting everywhere.

Shit!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving Buttermilk Biscuits

What I Used

3 1/2 cups self-rising flour. 1 1/2 sticks Salted Butter. 2 cups very cold Buttermilk. 1 tbsp Sugar. 2 tsp Baking Powder. A pinch of Salt. 1 Egg.

What I Did

 

Place the butter in freezer and chill.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt & baking powder.
Over the bowl, grate the frozen butter.

Stir the butter shavings into the flour mix and then using your hands, start to work the butter into the flour, grinding it between your fingers to break apart any clumps.
http://ivegotcake.comhttp://ivegotcake.comPour the cold buttermilk into the bowl and using a large spoon, give it about a few good stirs but be careful not to overmix.
Overmixing works against that flaky texture you are going for here.
The batter should be a little wet to touch.

 

Lightly flour the dough and form it into a ball.

Place the dough on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and form into a rectangle about 1.5 inches thick.
Place the tray in the freezer for about 10 mins to make for easier cutting.

 

Remove tray from freezer and cut into even squares (or circular mounds using a tumbler glass).

In a small bowl, whisk the egg, then brush it on top of the biscuits.

Now at this point, you can chose to freeze them for later by placing them in an air-tight ziplock bag and storing them in your freezer or bake them immediately.

 

When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400F.
Bake in the center of your oven for about 15 mins or until the top of the biscuits is golden brown.

Serve with buttahhh.

  1. I love buttermilk biscuits! Where is the pic of the baked biscuits? Did I miss it?
    I laughed out loud that you can’t bake without getting flour everywhere…get used to it…it doesn’t get better! Are you the same with paint? I always say I might as well dip myself into the paint at the very beginning and get it over with! I usually find paint in the most unusual places, even a week later!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I’m heading out to my very first black Friday to Kate Spade, my girl mentioned that there are going to be sales I cannot miss, wink wink!

    1. Ooooh!! Get a cute Kate Spade bag!!!

      And no you didn’t miss them. They aren’t there because I ran out of daylight and the biscuits didn’t last the night.
      That part also annoyed me because they were good as hell with that flaky buttery crust, mmm!!

      1. Hahaha! I know! These holidays are killers! I just bought 4 Pounds of butter TODAY!! Our poor hearts 💕 ❤️ 💕 are saying Noooo!!!

  2. Mmm biscuits! Does it get any better than that? Since we celebrate Thanksgiving in October…I’m free for dinner 🙂 Just throwing it out there. I’ll even clean up the flour 🙂 But for real, have a great Thanksgiving!

    xo, Jackie
