Biscuits are one of my favorite things to bake often. This recipe for biscuits is super simple to make and with only a few ingredients you can have fresh buttermilk biscuits in only a few minutes. If you don’t have buttermilk, use a measuring cup and to it add 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar and to it add milk to make 1/2 a cup. Stir it then let it sit for 5 minutes.
This recipe will only make 7 biscuits but they have very little butter in them and so are only 3 weight watchers points per biscuit. Although, they have little butter they are still very flaky, I think the buttermilk make them so flaky.
In a large bowl add the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix it all. To it add the butter cut into pieces.
Using a pastry cutter or 2 knives, but in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the buttermilk to the bowl.
Stir in the buttermilk until just moist and knead the dough a few times.
Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thickness, and cut with a 2 inch biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet and brush with egg wash. You’ll see more biscuits in my picture here because I doubled the recipe.
Bake in a preheated oven at 450 F degrees for about 10 minutes or until nice and golden.
These biscuits are very versatile, I’ve used them for biscuits with gravy, I used them to top chicken pot pies, or simple just eat them with some honey. They are simply delicious.
