Homemade Biscuits 3 Ways

Lorie Fangio from Slice of Heaven Cooking School shares three meal options with homemade biscuits.

Buttermilk Biscuits
½ cup frozen butter grated
2 ½ cups self-rising flour
1 cup chilled buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter melted

Preheat oven to 475.  Mix butter and flour together in a bowl, chill for 15 minutes.  Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, pour buttermilk into the well.  Stir a few times and turn out onto floured surface, dough will be sticky.  Press down with your hands forming a rectangle of dough.  The warmth from your hands will help the dough come together.  Fold the dough I half and again press down forming a rectangle.  Repeat this processes one more time, adding flour if the dough gets sticky.  Roll dough to ½ inch in thickness and cut using a 2 inch biscuit cutter, press down firmly without twisting.  Place biscuits into a greased pan and bake for 12-15 minutes until beginning to brown.  Brush with melted butter and serve.
