I have made and posted these biscuits before http://deevassweetthoughts.blogspot.com/2009/07/supposed-lazy-summer-days.html, but this time I went for the bigger and crispier edged version.
Well here they are and guess what? The recipe is below. Don' t stop at the pictures, okay.
Recipe by Devona Mcgill
3 cups of self rising flour (I use Southern Biscuit)
1 tsp. salt
1 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
400 degrees oven
Makes approx. 8-12 biscuits
In mixing bowl stir together flour and salt. Cut in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the buttermilk just until wet. Pour mixture out on lightly floured counter and knead a few times to bring all loose pieces together. Roll the dough to about 1 inch and using a floured cutter of your choosing, cut biscuit as close together as possible. Place biscuits on sheet pan, about 2 inches apart for crunchy sides or close to each other for softer sides. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
