Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk biscuits are a staple of any southern breakfast (and often, lunch and dinner). The Holladay House shares their traditional recipe for your holiday gatherings.

Cook time: 14-17 minutes | Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups self-rising flour, sifted
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, cold (refrigerate to solidify prior to measuring)
  • ¾ cup cold milk
  • Melted butter for brushing

Directions

Using your fingers, mix the flour and coconut oil very well until it feels crumbly. Add the milk and mix together but don't over mix. After kneading dought just a couple of times, roll it 1/2 inch thick onto a floured surface and cut into 3 inch rounds. Bake for about 3 minutes, and liberally brush the biscuits with melted butter. Bake 12 more minutes, until golden.
