A Sunday tradition in the Davis home is making buttermilk biscuits. Isaac and Emrie helped today and the biscuits turned out just great. Steve has a goal of perfecting a biscuit recipe, the key to flaky biscuits, use real butter and instead of cutting the butter into the dry mix, grate frozen butter cubes using a cheese grater. Also, do not over knead the dough.
Here is our recipe:
2 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
1 T sugar
1 tsp cream of tarter
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
After mixing dry mix, grate in tow cubes of frozen butter
Lightly mix then add 3/4 cup of buttermilk
Knead dough 8-10 times
Roll out dough and cut into squares or circles.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown!
