Good day friends! (it is actually 11:16 pm, I am cutting it close today) Another fun tip coming at you, today it is biscuits!
There are a TON of biscuit recipes out there in cyberspace. I have tried quite a few and have liked the majority of them because who can not like flour and butter and buttermilk mashed up, baked to crisp perfection and topped with mo butter and jam? Some of the recipes come out perfectly circular, tall and flaky with distinct layers. Some are drop biscuits cut with cheddar cheese, yum. I have loved them all, but had been unable to get that fluffy thick texture I was dreaming of.
I was scrolling through insta awhile back and came upon a Food Network video of a woman making the most glorious looking biscuits (pictured below). I saved the video and just would watch it randomly daydreaming of having the recipe for these. One day I was like I am just going to look this lady up and sure enough she has an insta and had just posted the ingredient list for the biscuits. It was the beginning of COVID so a lot of chefs were doing live food tutorials and she had done one with the biscuits but didn’t post it, just the ingredients… But I basically took my knowledge of baking biscuits and just went for it. AND THEY ARE THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER TASTED IN MY LIFE. This might be an over-exaggeration, but seriously when I tasted my first bite I was like, “it has been done”.
These biscuits can be made alone for breakfast, as an addition to soup, a topping to chicken pot pie or… I don’t know… ANY TIME for ANY REASON!
Here is the screenshot of the ingredients she listed and her instagram handle so you can go check her out @callieshotlittlebiscuit!
This is the process I took…
- Measure out the milk into a bowl, add a tsp of vinegar or lemon to start the buttermilk process.
- Measure out the flour into a bigger bowl.
- Grate the butter into the bowl of flour.
- Pinch off the cream cheese into small pea sized pieces into the flour bowl.
- Lightly stir the flour, butter, cream cheese mixture with a fork.
- Add in the buttermilk and stir until just combined,
- I started with doing rounds but have recently just been plopping the entire thing into a round pan and baking. Any way you do this they will be delicious.
- I baked for 13 minutes at 400 degrees.
I take no credit for these bad boys, all the biscuit kiddos go to the biscuit queen, Callie! Thank you so much for sharing your incredibleness with the world, it is much enjoyed.
