Buttermilk Biscuits

These biscuits came together quickly. I usually don't make biscuits, I'm afraid they will be hockey pucks. They didn't, they weren't fluffy so I still need to work on them. Tomorrow mornings biscuits and gravy will still be delicious.

I got this recipe from Pinterest.

Line a baking sheet with a silpat or foil. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.


3 cups flour
1 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup butter, cold diced
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup melted butter (optional)

In a large bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, cut butter in with 2 knives or pastry cutter until the mixture looks like it has pea size balls. Mix buttermilk and egg well. Add wet to dry ingredients. Add water if needed. Don't over mix pour out on to a floured board and roll out evenly. Cut biscuits, with a knife or cutter, place on baking sheet and bake for 12-16 minutes. Brush melted butter on tops and enjoy with honey or jam!
