Recipe: Simple Buttermilk Biscuits

I bought some buttermilk for probably the first time in my life the other day in order to make some amazing Chocolate Chip Scones. Since it is about to expire, I decided to bake some more so that it doesn't go to waste.

I usually just make my Easy Vegan Biscuits, but I decided to change it up a bit with the buttermilk, etc.

I used Alton Brown's Southern Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe and tweaked it a bit by adding whole wheat flour and I didn't have any shortening. I also added less salt.

-1 Cup AP Flour
-1 Cup WW Flour
-4 tsp Baking Powder
-1/4 tsp Baking Soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-4 Tbsp Blue Bonnet
-1 Cup Buttermilk
-Extra flour to use during kneading

-Preheat oven to 450F
-Mix together AP & WW flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda,  and salt.
-Add Blue Bonnet and slice into small clumps with two butter knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal
-Next, pour the buttermilk into the center of the flour mixture
-Mix until a sticky dough forms
-Pour a little extra flour onto wax paper (or any surface you like), with extra flour on your hands, take the dough and fold it over 5 or 6 times.
-Take dough and flatten it until it is about an inch thick
-Use either a can, a round cookie/biscuit cutter, or I used a 1/4 measuring cup to cut the biscuit shapes into the dough; repeat until all dough is used.
-Place biscuits onto a greased pan
-Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown
