JoJo’s Biscuits, Magnolia Table Vol 1

Print Recipe

Course: Breads
Serves: 10 biscuits

What You Will Need

  • 2 cups self-rising flour plus more for the work surface
  • 1 tablespoons baking powder
  • 12 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1.5 Sticks salted butter cold, cut into 1/2-inch pieces or grated
  • 1 large eggs beaten, plus 1 large egg for brushing
  • 34 cup buttermilk or as needed, plus 1 tablespoon for brushing

What You Will Need To Do

  1. Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scrape the dough onto a floured work surface. Use your floured hands to press it into a round roughly 14 inches across and about 1/2-inch thick.
  3. Use a floured 2 3/4-inch round cutter to cut out about 20 biscuits. If necessary, collect and pat out the scraps to cut more biscuits.
  4. Transfer the biscuits to the prepared baking sheet, arranging them so that they all are touching.
  5. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly in the pan on a rack.
  6. Biscuits are best the day they are made (and ideally fresh out of the oven!). Serve with strawberry jam or gravy, if desired. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Light & fluffy and very versatile. This morning I eat a couple alone as my husband picks up our daughter from Mema’s. When we have them for breakfast Monday, we will eat them as Biscuits & Gravy.

As long as you remember to add prep time to your recipe and extra flour when you press them out they are simple to make. I do recommend grating the cold butter before stirring into the flour as a part of your prep. This made it a quick process with all that delicious butter.

And let me say this. Is there anything better than butter? Think it over. Every time you taste something that’s delicious beyond imagining, and you say, “What is in this?” The answer is always going to be “butter.” It’s incredible … You can never have too much butter.
