The Never-Fail Buttermilk Biscuits

The Never-Fail Buttermilk Biscuits

Recently I tried making Alton Brown’s recipe for Southern biscuits and so far it’s my favorite buttermilk biscuit recipe. The biscuits turn out tall and flaky, but crispy on the outside. Overall, the recipe is very easy to follow and the result is delicious!

In his recipe the chef suggests using a 2-inch cutter, which is great for serving the biscuits with jam, for example. But using a larger one will also give you the opportunity to make delicious breakfast sandwiches from these biscuits.



In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Rub the butter and shortening into the flour mixture using your fingertips. Proceed until it looks like crumbs.


Pour the buttermilk in the center. Mix, so everything comes together. You'll get a very sticky dough.


Flour a countertop. Place the dough on it. Sprinkle with flour. Fold the dough over itself for about 5 times. Press so the layer is 1-inch thick. Using a 2-inch cutter cut out the biscuits. Then cut out the biscuits from the leftovers, but try to work the dough as little as possible. Otherwise, the biscuits won't be light.


Place the biscuits onto a baking sheet and bake at 450 °F (230 °C) for 15–20 minutes. The biscuits should become tall and light golden on top.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thank you|

Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m
looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your
site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

I do consider all of the ideas you’ve offered on your post.
They’re really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for novices.
May you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

Look forward to looking into your web page again.

site loading speed is amazing. It seems that you’re doing any unique trick.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos
