Light & Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits
These Light & Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits are the best addition to your breakfast table. Not only are they light and fluffy like the name suggests, they are flaky on the inside too thanks to my folding technique which I describe below. A little tip for you that I learned the hard way – do not overwork the dough or you will end up with tough dense biscuits.
Start by mixing flour with butter to create coarse crumbs. Add some buttermilk and bring together until you have a dough. Transfer to a floured work surface and fold to create layers before cutting using a circular dough cutter. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Result: enjoy delicious, fluffy, buttermilk biscuits warm from the oven!
