Heavenly Biscuits

In order to feel better about my poor flavorless pork chops I decided to try out a new buttermilk biscuit recipe (previous biscuit recipes include buttermilk with cream cheese and my yummy dill biscuits). They didn't get as puffy as the ones with cream cheese but they were nice and silky. I loved the way they split in the center. It was a great use for that extra buttermilk!
Buttermilk Biscuits
(from a lovely life blog)
3/4c butter, cut into small pieces
3c flour
2 Tbsp sugar
5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/4c buttermilk
1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and combine with a pastry blender or two forks until very crumbly. The pieces should be no larger than peas.
2. Combine egg and buttermilk and pour into dry mixture. Stir with a fork until just combined. Flour the countertop and turn dough onto the counter. Pat out to about 3/4″ thickness. Fold back over itself to get the cute middle split. Slice into 12 squares or cut with a round biscuit cutter into 12 biscuits.
3. Place biscuits on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray or lined with parchment.
4. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until tops are golden.
So yummy and warm.
 With melty butter!
 With some asiago cheese.
