Happy Weekend!! I’m kicking of this Saturday the right way by making Southern biscuits and country ham. I had the opportunity to visit Nashville in August, part of the trip was visiting the very beautiful Belle Meade Plantation. While on the tour, we got a biscuit making demonstration, complete with our very own biscuit cutter! 🙂 This is the recipe that they taught us. I’ve been dying to make the recipe and use the little guy. I also purchased some yummy country ham while I was there as well. It is super salty and delicious!
-2 c. all purpose flour (plus more for rolling out the dough!)
-1 tsp. sugar
-1 Tbsp. baking powder
-1 tsp. salt
-8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed (1 stick)
-1/2 c. milk
Let’s get bakin’!
- Preheat the oven to 425º. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- Cut the butter into small cubes and combine with the dry ingredients with a fork or pastry cutter.
- Make a well in the flour mixture and slowly pour in the milk. Mix with a fork until well combined, then knead gently with your hands until the dough comes together in a sticky ball.
- Roll out the dough on a floured surface until you reach desired consistency. Don’t overmix the dough! 🙂 Roll out until about 1/2 inch thickness.
- Use your biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits into rounds. Grease a cast iron skillet or cake pan with butter and place the biscuits into the pan. Re-roll any leftover dough that you may have to make more biscuits! 🙂
- Dot the biscuits with some butter and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
K bye!!! :-*
