Tuesdays At The Table - Buttermilk Biscuits

Happy Tuesday, ladies!!  And better yet - HAPPY SPRING! It snowed here today...but it will warm up eventually.  :-)

This week I'm sharing buttermilk biscuits.  So easy; so yummy; so versatile!

Lovely Yellow Ribbons

Buttermilk Biscuits

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup cold vegetable shortening
2 tablespoons cold butter
1 1/3 cup buttermilk

Egg Wash
In a small bowl beat together one large egg with 1 tablespoon water.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking sheet and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda until combined well. Cut in the butter and shortening until mixture resembles small peas. Stirring with a fork, gently add in buttermilk to make a soft dough. With floured hands knead dough gently, in bowl.

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll or pat biscuit dough to 1/2 inch thickness and cut with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter.

Place cut-out dough about 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Brush buttermilk biscuit tops with Egg Wash. Bake biscuits in the center of the oven for 14-17 minutes, until golden brown.

  17. Hi Cole :-)
    God's 'timing' is again making me chuckling. After my therapy session today, I treated my neighbor/friend/driver to a late breakfast at Bob Evans, during which I commented on how biscuits is one thing I have not yet conquered. I can make them, but they have yet to turn out the way I want.
    Then i get on here and see what you posted .... humorous! I shall have to keep trying!

    How are you healing?
    What about your mom?
    How's your grandma?
    Good job saving that much on your web purchase the other day!
    Hope you like your new glasses.

  18. Yummy. Happy Spring. Oh no, that means it's going into autumn where I am in NZ :)

  19. I linked up a recipe for virtually fat free carrot muffins. They are so good and I am eating them as a low calorie breakfast each morning as part of a healthier eating/lose weight goal.

  20. Just found your site hopping around in the blogworld :]

  21. The biscuits look great.. I've linked a vegetarian engree called falafel. Itis really delicious and is made really simply, yet still crunchy in a slow cooker! You have to try them

  22. Nothing better than homemade biscuits!
    Thanks for hosting.

  23. Hi Cole! I am giggling because I just made biscuits on tuesday with some chicken gravy. I make mine with a combination of lard and butter and they come out stupendously! I am so happy to be able to use a traditional recipe now that butter and lard are health heros again! :) I am linking up some awesome barbecue beef on an bun! All the best, Alex
