Buttermilk Biscuits

Mmmmmm.... biscuits! I love a soft, fluffy biscuit! I have been making these for years and they have never let me down. They rise beautifully and taste wonderful. By themselves, with jam, or served my favorite way (smothered in a homemade sausage gravy), they are great! ENJOY!

Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 TBSP sugar
1 tsp salt
4 TBSP unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
For finishing:
1 cup flour
2 TBSP butter, melted

Preheat oven to 500. Prepare 8" square pan with cooking spray.
Combine flour through butter and mix until crumbly. Add buttermilk; stir until just combined.
Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop dough and drop into flour. Form into ball and place in pan. Brush with melted butter.
Bake 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 450 and bake for 10-15 minutes more or until golden.

Cristine, I really stink at making biscuits - but I really, really love them with chicken & gravy...your biscuits look awesome. I'm going to try yours soon so I can see if I can make them as nice as you did! I keep hoping for the perfect biscuit!

I've not made homemade biscuits before but they're on my list of challenges. Yours look perfect. Too often they look and taste dry. I've recently started making sausage gravy and biscuits. My children and I love it! I bet homemade biscuits are insanely better with it!
