Bring out your Southern with these homemade biscuits. You'll wonder why you ever resorted to a can!
Let's talk homemade biscuits, y'all! Ok, I just had to say it. I feel like makin' biscuits (said with my best Southern accent) deserved a "y'all!" But seriously, these flaky homemade buttermilk biscuits are about to be your new go-to biscuit recipe.
Layer upon buttery layer of flaky dough, just like the big name brand ones that come in a can. You know the ones I'm talking about - but these are way better and really easy to make. You're not going to be buying that can anymore, that's for sure.
Lightly crisp, golden brown outside, tender inside. and then when pulled apart, wonderful flaky layers are revealed. And how do those magical layers get there? Through the process of lamination.
Much like making puff pastry, the dough is rolled out then folded, turned and rolled out again. Repeating this process a few times creates layers of butter and flour that went baked creates those lovely flaky layers.
What's even better is that as indulgent as these biscuits taste, they're nice to your waistline. Thanks to a small amount of butter, whole wheat flour and buttermilk, these biscuits are healthier than your average biscuit.
These buttery layered biscuits are perfect for dinner or with a hearty breakfast. They're great with a pat of butter, dipped in gravy or with a smear of jam. But my favorite way to enjoy them is warm, fresh from the oven all by themselves. I know you'll enjoy these too.
