I love working with dough and for those of you who haven’t made home made bread, this is an easy biscuit recipe you can start with to get the hang of it. The key is not to overwork the dough. I loved how flakey these came out and they only made 6 which was perfect for us.
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Biscuits
(Adapted from food.com)
2 1/4 cups Bisquick
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
melted butter, for brushing
Preheat oven to 450.
Mix the Bisquick, buttermilk and sugar together in a bowl.
Add the melted butter into the batter.
Stir until a soft dough forms.
Turn out onto a well floured work surface.
Knead 20 times (this is a very forgiving dough), and don’t be afraid to get additional flour into the dough.
Roll 1/2 thick, or thicker if you prefer towering biscuits.
Place close together on an ungreased baking sheet.
Brush tops with melted butter.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes; I usually find 8 minutes is enough.
When you remove the biscuits from the oven, brush the tops with melted butter again.
