Make flaky biscuits for someone you love today!  Biscuits can be cut, frozen and baked as needed for a tasty foundation for a weeknight meal.  I like to stuff fresh biscuits with roasted turkey, bacon and avocado OR left over pork loin that has been tossed with barbeque sauce, add some slaw and you have a meal.  Make breakfast for dinner by layering biscuits with with ham, egg and cheese.  

Cut biscuits into smaller sized and stuff with all kinds of fillings for a cocktail buffet!

Buttermilk Biscuits

½ cup frozen butter grated

2 ½ cups self-rising flour

1 cup chilled buttermilk

2 tablespoons butter melted

 

Preheat oven to 475.  Mix butter and flour together in a bowl, chill for 15 minutes.  Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, pour buttermilk into the well.  Stir a few times and turn out onto floured surface, dough will be sticky.  Press down with your hands forming a rectangle of dough.  The warmth from your hands will help the dough come together.  Fold the dough I half and again press down forming a rectangle.  Repeat this processes one more time, adding flour if the dough gets sticky.  Roll dough to ½ inch in thickness and cut using a 2 inch biscuit cutter, press down firmly without twisting.  Place biscuits into a greased pan and bake for 12-15 minutes until beginning to brown.  Brush with melted butter and serve.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
