Garlic-Rosemary Buttermilk Drop Biscuits
Happy 2013! I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season. Now I know it's time to shed those holiday pounds but before you do that, you might want to make these deelish biscuits. I've made these a few times (most recently for Christmas dinner) and they are always a hit.Garlic + Butter always = a good time.
Yields 8 biscuits
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 tbs dried rosemary
6 tbs cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup buttermilk
4 tbs melted butter
1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
2. in a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for buttermilk and melted butter. With a pastry blender, mix ingredients until the consistency is similar to cornmeal.
3. Pour buttermilk into the center of the mixture. Fold the buttermilk in until all ingredients are evenly combined.
4. Place parchment paper onto a large baking sheet. With a tablespoon, drop 8 mounds of dough (evenly-space) onto the baking sheet.
NOTE: Batter will be sticky.
5. Evenly pour melted butter over the biscuits. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
