Buttermilk Biscuits Dunkin Style


As I have mentioned previously I cannot seem to make biscuits, they never turn out. I decided this Sunday morning to give it another try. I was inspired by a recipe I saw which involved adding my very favorite food, Cheese!

I checked out a few biscuit recipes, they are all essentially the same. I decided to make mine cheesy, savory and very flavorful. The Biscuit God must of been watching over me, because they turned out amazing; flaky, savory, and the Cayenne woke up my mouth! WJ you would of been proud~

2 cups of all purpose flour
1.5 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cube non salted butter
1 cup buttermilk, start with 3/5 cup and add more as needed
1/2 tbl onion powder
1 tsp dried mustard
1/2 tsp Cayenne, you might want less
1.5 tbl dried chives
1/2 cup cheese (I used sharp cheddar)

In a mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients together with a fork. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Make a well in the center and add buttermilk (start out with 3/4 cup and add more as needed). Quickly fold dry ingredients and spices 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.
