I've been posting lots of lunch and dinner options, but no breakfast options. And breakfast is just as important as all those other meals. So I decided that I'd make buttermilk biscuits to go with some fresh strawberries this morning. Excuse the pictures. It's kinda hard to take great pictures when your hands are covered in dough. :/ This isn't my momma's recipe. She doesn't have a specific recipe, and she uses Self-Rising flour, where I use All-purpose. So, I found an Alton Brown recipe (my culinary hero). :)
These were delicious with breakfast this morning and I wish that I'd taken pictures with the strawberries, but, man, I was hungry. Ha.
So, you're gonna need:
2 cups of flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
2 tablespoons of vegetable shortening (I put mine in the freezer so it would be super cold)
2 tablespoons of butter
1 cup of cold buttermilk
3/4 teaspoon salt
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, or until brown on top.
