TRISHA'S BUTTER BISCUITS
Trisha's Butter Biscuits
- 1/3 cup REAL butter, cut up
- 2 cups self rising flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 to 1 cup scant buttermilk*
Preheat oven to 425. With pastry blender, cut butter into flour and baking powder until crumbly. Make a well in center of mixture. Add and stir in buttermilk to moisten dry ingredients and form ball. Lightly flour hands and rolling pin. Turn out onto lightly floured board or pastry sheet and turn and knead 3 to 4 times, gently. Use just enough flour to keep dough from sticking to hands and board. Roll out dough to about 3/4 inch. Cut with round biscuit cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheet or baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 12 to 14 minutes and serve immediately.
*I have found that the stickier the dough, the lighter more tender the biscuit will be.
