Buttery Biscuits

    Our family likes creamed turkey on biscuits.  Since our granddaughter was home from California and I had frozen turkey leftover from our Christmas dinner, it seemed like a good time to get us all together and use my leftover turkey.  The biscuit recipe I have used from the past has always been adequate but not impressive so I decided to look for a new recipe.  I found this one.  After making a few minor adjustments--adding more salt and decreasing the butter from 1/2 c. to 1/3 c.-- I think it is perfect so I'm posting it to share and also so I can easily find it.  I will add it to the Recipes #1 page also. 

Buttery Biscuits

2 c. all-purpose flour
2 ½ tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 T. white sugar
1/3 c. butter
3/4 c. buttermilk (Or 3/4 T. white vinegar added to 3/4 c. milk)

      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

      Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in 1/3 cup butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (Freeze the butter and grate it first, then add to flour to make incorporating so much easier).  Mix in the buttermilk. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead a few times.  Roll to 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. Cut into squares or use a round cutter. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
      Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned.
