This morning my fiance (yes, i’m engaged!) and i felt like having some southern-style biscuits & sausage gravy for Sunday brunch. So we split up the task: I made the biscuits and he made the gravy.
- 1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
Toss butter into the dry ingredients until coated with flour. Working quickly and using your fingers or a pastry blender, rub or cut butter into flour until it resembles coarse meal.
Add milk and stir with a spatula until it just comes together into a slightly sticky, shaggy dough.
Using a 1/4-cup measuring scoop, mound balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. (I managed 8 balls.)
Bake biscuits until golden brown, about 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly, then transfer to wire rack. Serve warm with sausage gravy.
The biscuits were amazing: crispy on the outside, soft & buttery on the inside. They were great on their own even without the gravy. With the gravy, absolute perfection. These biscuits definitely satisfied the Texan in me!
