Ingredients

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup cornmeal

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup buttermilk  

 

 *Substitute 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar plus enough milk to equal 1 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 450°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk; stir until mixture is just combined. (If batter is too thin, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons flour.)

  3. STEP 3

    Drop by 1/4 cupfuls, 1 inch apart, onto greased baking sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.

Tip #1

Tender biscuits result when the dough is not over mixed. Combine the wet and dry ingredients only until the mixture holds together to avoid a tough texture. To make softer, fluffier biscuits, place the dough closer together on the baking sheet. If you prefer crustier biscuits, place biscuits 2 inches apart on the baking sheet

We really enjoyed these biscuits. I used 1.5 cups flour + 1 cup of cornmeal. I ended up needing closer to 1.25 cups of buttermilk. There's a nice crunch to it, thanks to the cornmeal. I made these very easily by whirling all dry ingredients in my food processor to combine. Then cut up cold butter, pulsed it to combine (about 8-9 times). Took the blade out and poured the buttermilk in, mixed with a fork & spoon. The dough wasn't too wet so I used my hands to make 12 biscuits which made them look nice, round, and even. In the last minute of baking, I turned my broiler on for about a minute to make them golden on top. They were great! I prefer this to regular biscuits.
