These biscuits will taste just like your grandmother's but they are made with Bisquick. Here's how you can create delicious, fluffy biscuits without all the fuss. Makes about six biscuits.
Ingredients
1 1/2 cups Bisquick
2 Tablespoons cold, unsalted butter
Pinch salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
 
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Measure Bisquick into a medium bowl and add the butter in small slices. Use a pastry blender or fork to mix the butter into the Bisquick until small crumbs form. Add a generous pinch of salt.
3. Pour the buttermilk into the mixture and use a silicone spatula to blend until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Do not over mix.
4. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured silicone mat and fold the dough over about six times. Lightly press the dough out until it is about one inch thick.
5. Cut the biscuits out using a two-inch round cutter and place on a baking sheet or stone with sides barely touching. Press the dough scraps back together, working the dough as little as possible and continue to cut biscuits until all dough is used.
6. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until the biscuits are tall and golden on top.
 
Notes:
For best results, measure Bisquick by spooning it into a measuring cup and leveling it off without packing it down.
