What is it about biscuits that make them perfect for everything!!! Maybe it's the ridiculous amount of butter that goes in them or the flaky pillow-light texture, or that they're so easy to make. Who cares because once you try these savory buttermilk biscuits, all you'll care about is how you can score a second one at dinner before they disappear.
It's almost holiday time and Thanksgiving will smack us in the face with traditional solid recipes like green bean casserole, stuffing, gravy, all the good stuff. You have a good idea of what you'll be eating next Thursday in some form or another. I ain't complaining, I love all. of. it.
Dinner rolls have a special place on the table too, but this year you should change things up a little and make these biscuits. Flaky and light don't be surprised if you see some of your guests stuffing them into their pockets.
It all starts with the dough. This isn't like making bread, it's soooo much easier because there's no kneading and no rising. In fact, you want to handle the dough as little as possible. Almost half a pound of butter is used plus even more is brushed over the rolls as they come out of the oven. Is too much butter even a thing?
Get that dough nice and flat, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Not too flat, though, we don't want to kill the dough that we've been handling like a baby hamster for the past 10 minutes. Brush each biscuit with beaten egg because we want our biscuits to look nice and shiny and dapper.
Sprinkle with sea salt, the flaked good stuff, cracked black pepper and lots more fresh thyme.
You can skip the garlic bath at the end if you like, but why on earth would you turn down more butter. I was pretty amazed at how the melted butter soaks right into the biscuit without any feeling of being greasy.
I hereby rest my case, pass on the bread rolls and go biscuits!
Flaky and light, these buttermilk biscuits are flavored with fresh thyme, sea salt and cracked black pepper. As soon as they come out of the oven, glaze them with garlic butter for the perfect side to any special dinner.
