From Our Kitchen to Yours: Making a Dozen Buttermilk Biscuits

If you do not have a biscuit cutter, a small glass cup will do the trick!
— Carrie
  • 1 bag of Callie's Biscuit Mix
  • 6 tbsp salted butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 3/4 to 1 cup whole buttermilk
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F
  2. Place 2 cups of the mix into a large bowl
  3. Cut 4 tbsp butter and cream cheese into small cubes, and then incorporate until the mixture looks like grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dough, add buttermilk, and combine until the dough is wet and sticky.
  5. Dust the dough, rolling surface, rolling pin, and a 2-in biscuit cutter very liberally with the remaining biscuit mix.
  6. Dump the dough onto a floured surface. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thick. Using floured biscuit cutter, cute straight down into the dough, starting from the outside edge of the dough and working in.
  7. Place biscuits on a parchment lined baking sheet with sides. The biscuits should touch each other in the pan.
  8. Brush with 2 tbsp butter.
  9. Bake for 16-18 minutes, turning the pan half way through and continuing until the tops are a light golden brown.

Don't forget, once you master the buttermilk biscuit, try adding some of your favorite ingredients. This is how many of our biscuits came to be!

For example, add 1 cup of coarsely grated sharp cheddar cheese to the bowl after the butter and cream cheese have been incorporated. Then complete the recipe as stated and your finished product will be a nice Sharp-Cheddar Cheese Biscuit. Yum!
