Tonight, I've pulled out a relatively new recipe I've only made a few times. It smells delish and I can't wait to eat it tonight! We're having Lentil Vegetable Soup with some homemade buttermilk drop biscuits. I haven't made these biscuits in years, but I'm so glad I did tonight because it reminded me that they're super easy and pretty yummy and I should make them more often!
Here's a recipe I came up with after playing around with biscuit recipes in The Joy of Cooking:
Buttermilk Drop Biscuits
- 2 C Flour
- 2-2 1/2 t. Baking Powder
- 1/2 t. Baking Soda
- 1/2-3/4 t. Salt
- 1/4 C Shortening or 5-6 T cold, unsalted butter
- 1 C milk
- 1 T white vinegar
BTW...These aren't your typical breakfast biscuits. They're more of a pick 'em up and take a big bite & if you want to dunk them, dunk them...if you want to smear them with jelly, go for it, kind of biscuit! I used butter for the 1st time today instead of shortening and it was delicious finding little butter pockets! :-) Hope you like them, or play with them until you do! I played with many recipes a few years ago until I found this easy & quick combo. They were really yummy w/ the soup!
