She also asked what i wanted to have with it.  I did not know until now.  I am going to have Turkey sausage with yummy buttermilk biscuits. 

I made them a month ago and we all liked them.  I really liked them.  Especially with honey butter. 

This time my mom wants us to try them with GRAVY!  El Gringo thinks that is just revolting. I don’t know if it is good, but i will try it.

Here’s the recipe:

Biscuit Recipe: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, sift or whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs (use pastry blender, two knives, or fingertips). Add the milk and slightly beaten egg and stir until just combined. (The texture should be sticky, moist and lumpy.)

Place mixture on a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough gently until it comes together and is a smooth dough.

Roll out dough to about a 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thickness. Cut out biscuits with a lightly floured round cookie cutter. Place on prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with the beaten egg and milk mixture and bake for about 10 – 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the biscuit comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack. Serve warm with butter.

Makes about 10 – 2 1/2 inch (6 cm) biscuits.

Biscuit Recipe:

2 1/2 cups (325 grams) all-purpose flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon (14 grams) granulated white sugar (optional)

1/2 cup (113 grams) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

3/4 cup (180 ml) milk

1 large egg, lightly beaten


1 large egg, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon milk






















I got this recipe off of joyofbaking.com

El Gringo found this lady when he was making Lamingtons from Australia. She is an awesome teacher.

 Anyway, back to the biscuits.   Here’s the amazing video for the Buttermilk Biscuits:
