2 1/3 cups self rising flour
8 TBL sugar
1 stick butter, frozen *if you use unsalted add pinch of salt to recipe*
1 1/3 cup buttermilk * I used 2/3 cup half and half 1/2 cup water and 1 1/2 tsp cider vinegar *
1 cup of AP flour for coating.
1/4 melted butter
preheat oven 425° line bottom of 8x8 pan with parchment paper and have two sides over hang. Butter bottom, set aside.
Mix flour and sugar together, grate frozen butter into flour, knead with hands to get butter incorperated but don't over work. Slowly add buttermilk and mix til combined...AGAIN DON'T OVERWORK. This dough will be very wet. On a large piece of wax paper or a cookie sheet spread out the 1 cup of flour. Using two large spoons drop dough on flour *made them the size you want your biscuit to be* gentle shake them around then pick them up and toss them gently from hand to hand they will make into a ball on their own. Place in pan, make sure they are all touching. They should make about 16 good size biscuits. Bake for 25 minutes or until just light golden brown, remove and brush with butter and return for another 4 to 5 minutes. Immediately remove, separate and enjoy.
Hope you try these, the family kept saying these are the best, and oh boy would they be good as biscuits and gravy, with apple butter, with jelly, with bacon, egg and cheese. So see a very big hit.
Have a great week and always Remember to Find the Time to DO ALL the things YOU L♥ve.
