Tempted yet? Here’s a buttermilk biscuit recipe for you to try!

Buttermilk Biscuits

2-1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 tablespoons butter, cold, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
3/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 400F.  Grease an 8″ round pan.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Mix the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the flour resembles meal.  Combine the yogurt and buttermilk and stir together gently.

Place everything onto a floured countertop and knead just until the dough holds together.  Pat into a 1″-tall rectangle.  Using a 2-1/2″ biscuit cutter, cut out 8 biscuits by pushing the cutter in and pulling it up without twisting; this helps the biscuits to rise better.  Place the biscuits into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden on top.

Serve hot with butter, jam, honey, gravy, or anything else that strikes your fancy.

Makes 8 biscuits.
