Ingredients

1 medium
onion, finely chopped
2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
brown sugar
3/4 tsp
poppy seeds
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/4 c
(1/2 stick) cold butter, cubed
1 c
buttermilk

Step-By-Step

1In a small nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the onion until tender; set aside.

2In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, poppy seeds, salt and baking soda. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

3Stir in the onions. Stir in the buttermilk just until moistened.

4Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead 6-8 times. Pat to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter.

5Place biscuits 2 inches apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray.

6Bake in a preheated 450-degree oven for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

7NOTE: If you don't have buttermilk, you may substitute 1 Tbsp. of white vinegar or lemon juice and enough milk to measure a total of 1 cup (for 1 cup buttermilk).
