This rich biscuit recipe comes together easily with our homemade biscuit mix. Spreading out the dough rounds on a baking sheet (instead of placing them right next to each other) allows the edges to brown and bake up crisp. Your family and friends will beg for seconds.
Hands-on time: 5 min. Total time: 20 min.
Serve these biscuits with a smear of your favorite jam or jelly or a bit of apple butter.
• 2 2/3 cups Biscuit Mix
• 6 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into pieces
• 1 1/4 cups nonfat buttermilk
• Cooking spray
1. Preheat oven to 450°.
2. Place Biscuit Mix in a medium bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk; stir just until moist. Pat dough to 3/4-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with a 2 1/4-inch biscuit cutter into 14 biscuits.
3. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Coat biscuits with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Note: If you’d like to freeze these biscuits, prepare the recipe through step 2, and place the raw biscuits on a baking sheet. Cover them with plastic wrap, and place in the freezer. Once they’re frozen, transfer to a zip-top plastic bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
