But have no fear, creating fresh biscuits is actually quite simple. And if you’re looking to throw a party centered around biscuits, homemade are best. The key to a good biscuit starts with a reliable recipe, and this one fits the bill. For the perfect balance of structure and tenderness we found that a combinatio­n of all-purpose and cake flours worked the best. And using butter provides maximum flavor. Plus, a little TK tip — shredding the butter while it’s frozen minimizes overmixing and warming the dough. Also, a bit of sugar helps with browning and elevates all the flavors, while tangy buttermilk brings the dough together. These biscuits have it all — they’re crisp, tender, flaky, and delicious. And even though biscuits are great on their own, it wouldn’t be a biscuit bonanza without a few choice toppings. You can never go wrong with sausage gravy, and simply adding apple juice makes this gravy irresistib­le. Or, spread the pimento cheese on a biscuit with ham and braised greens. No matter which combinatio­n of toppings you decide to load up onto your biscuit, you won’t go wrong. Buttermilk Biscuits PAGE 24 23 ISSUE 140 | APRIL 2020
