Buttermilk Biscuits

Haven’t made biscuits in a years and I thought this would be the perfect recipe to double and freeze some for the baby arrival.  Love biscuits but I eat them like a sandwich with butter and deli on them – I am not a fan of the gravy on my biscuits, actually I really hate soggy bread. I changed this recipe from 340 F and to 450F and just made the cooking time shorter.  They turned out great.  I have actually already made a few batches.

It’s also time for another Secret Recipe Club “assignment!” Every month you get a name of a blog and you need to choose ANY recipe from that blog and then blog about that recipe by a date. It’s a secret because the blog owner does not know you are doing this until the reveal date. My secret blog this month was Mom’s Fridge which is written by Barb.

So I am almost 39 weeks pregnant can’t believe it and this is what I looked like at 13 weeks and here at 38 weeks – huge difference.  I am ready – the belly is heavy that is all I have to say. Otherwise i can’t complain my pregnancy has been really easy.

Buttermilk Biscuits

Yield: 10-12

Prep Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


2 cups all-purpose flour and some for dusting

2 tbsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

8 tbsp salted butter, chilled and cubed

¾ cup + 2 tbsp buttermilk


Preheat the oven to 450 F.

Place the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt in a food processor fitted with a medal blade. Add the cold butter and pulse a few times until the mixture resembles coarse pea or dime-size crumbs. Be careful not to overwork the mixture or the butter will soften too much.

Open the lid and add the buttermilk evenly over the flour. Pulsate a few times until combined, again do not over mix.

Turn the dough onto a floured surface and form it into a ball. Lightly knead the dough 2 or 3 times until combined.

Pat the dough into a 3/4 to 1-inch thick rectangle. Use a 2 to 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter to cut out several biscuits. Place them on a ungreased cookie sheet.

Gather the dough scraps, smooth them out (lightly knead if necessary), and pat the remaining dough into another 3/4 to 1-inch thick rectangle or circle. Cut out more biscuits, and then repeat again if necessary to use remaining dough.

Bake the biscuits for 10-12 minutes (rotating the pan front to back halfway through) or until the tops are light brown. Serve warm.

      Heather – I am so ready – this belly is HEAVY and in the way. But most of all i am so curious i just want to meet her now. Here is a pic of my belly from last week at 38 weeks – But of course i am trying to be relaxed about labor and just want to go with the flow but it is such a unknown it kind of scares me.

    Amazing how those little buggers can grow and stretch us out 😉 You STILL look amazing though!

    I’m a fan of buttermilk biscuits but I rarely make them myself. I prefer to let my mom make them, I’m spoiled. lol

      Shelby – I know, your body is pretty amazing. Thanks for the nice comments!

    Ooooh, delicious. I think these are called scones here in the UK. I love them for Sunday tea with butter and jam after a long walk.

    • Delishhh replied: — February 8th, 2012 @ 7:28 pm

      Paula – Being Swedish we call these scones too we use the UK terms :). I love them with butter and jam too, do not like how they serve them here with gravy etc, the southern way. Thanks for stopping by.

    These look like perfection to me. Biscuits are something I find hard to make. No idea why. How exciting to be so close to delivery. You are so lucky it’s been easy, both mine were difficult pregnancies. For my son I got chicken pox while pregnant. My daughter I ended up on bed rest by month 5. I felt good, but my body was a mess.

    The introduction of the baking of processed cereals including the creation of flour provided a more reliable source of food. Egyptian sailors carried a flat, brittle loaf of millet bread called dhourra cake, while the Romans had a biscuit called buccellum.,
