Since I’m a bit tight on funds this week, I chose a really simple recipe for Tyler Florence Fridays – buttermilk biscuits.
These were super easy and incredibly delicious. I think I rolled mine too thin, so they didn’t puff up as much, and subsequently made about 15, not 8 per the recipe, but they were still really, really good. I only gobbled up 4 right out of the oven.
We’ve got only one more week with Tyler, and I’ll be so sad when it’s done. I joined the group late, but it’s been a blast and I’m looking forward to continuing to cook with Tyler in the future. Check out what everyone else made and then check out the new cooking club on the ‘net – I heart Cooking Clubs. (I may be getting into that one too!) 🙂
In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients together with a fork. Cut in the shortening using a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center and add buttermilk. Quickly fold dry ingredients into buttermilk with your hands until a sticky dough forms.
Turn dough out onto floured surface. Gently fold the dough over itself 3 or 4 times to create layers. Roll dough out to 3/4-inch thick. Cut with a 3-inch biscuit cutter. Transfer dough rounds to a sheet pan. Gather scraps and repeat. Make a dimple in the center to help the top rise evenly. Brush with butter. Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated 400 degree oven until golden brown.
