I remember on rainy days after school in high school my older sister, older by 2.5 years and two grades in school, would make biscuits for us to eat as an after school snack. This memory is so infused into my childhood that I can almost taste the sweet and salty combination of warm biscuit, melting butter and preserves if I close my eyes and put myself back into our den {as it was called then} in Stamford, CT.

Of course then it was a quick version whipped up made from Bisquick that was available in our cabinet. She has always been the baker between us – I would try to make brownies but they would always come out rock hard… Savory has always been my thing. But thank goodness she had the baking gene as I got to benefit from it on a regular basis.

So as we approach back-to-school season and the cooler weather, I wanted to try my hand and making homemade buttermilk biscuits that I am sure could never replace the ones my sister made, but perhaps bring me back to the youthful place with butter and jelly falling from my hands with no other care in the world – except homework and the occasional high school girl drama.

Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits
  1. 2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
  2. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  3. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  4. 1/4 cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into dice
  5. 1 cup buttermilk
  1. Heat oven to 425°f.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Use your hands to mix butter into the flour mixture until it's just crumbled. Butter pieces should be about pea size.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk. Mix until all the ingredients are incorporated, no longer. It should be sticky but not wet or dry to the touch.
  5. Lightly flour a cold work surface and place dough on top. Lightly flour the top of the dough and use your hand to recreate a rectangle about 1 inch high.
  6. Fold that rectangle toward you, rotate the dough, roll it out gently using a rolling pin. Note the word gently. Keep away from the sides of the rectangle to encourage the "layers".
  7. Repeat the folding and rolling two more times {feel free to add a few more folds as your mood allows}.
  8. Roll the dough to an inch thick and cut using a biscuit cutter. NOTE:: do not twist your cutter, it will seal the edges and the biscuits will not rise.
  9. Gathering and re-rolling the remaining dough until all is used.
  10. Placing the cut biscuits in a lightly grease baking sheet touching one another on a lightly greased baking sheet {they actually help each other rise!}
  11. Bake for 10-15 minutes. The should be golden brown on top.
  1. This version of a homemade buttermilk biscuit taught me the importance of creating the folded layers, not over working the dough, and the impact that oven, humidity and freshness of ingredients can make. Please view this recipe as a guide to create your own memories but keep your location and climate in mind.

    Beautiful photography! Yes, you and me are alike in that I prefer savory cooking as opposed to baking too.
