Come On Up To The House

Herb Biscuits

I needed to use up some buttermilk and found this recipe. These are wonderful with dinner.

Herb Biscuits

8.75oz all purpose flour (about 2 1/2cups)
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp black pepper
8 tbsp cold butter
2 tsp dried thyme
1 cup buttermilk

Heat the oven to 450°F. Mix all dry ingredients together. Add in 7 tbsp butter in small bits.  Reserve 1 tbsp on the stick of butter to brush onto the tops of the biscuits once baked. Carefully break up the butter with your hands or a pastry cutter into the flour. Add in the buttermilk and mix until dough comes together. If the dough is too dry, add in a little more buttermilk (teaspoons at a time).

Turn out dough onto a silpat and knead about three times. Form into about 16 – 20 biscuits using a biscuit cutter. Place biscuits onto a silpat lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

When finished baking, brush with reserved tablespoon of butter and serve.
