These are so simple to make in the food processor. Using a food processor makes for a more tender biscuit, because you aren't handling the dough as much. A few pulses, and you have biscuit dough. You can make this recipe as you would any other scratch biscuit if you don't have a food processor. Enjoy! My photos

How To Make buttermilk biscuits - food processor

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, or in the bowl of a food processor.
  • 2
    Cut the butter into chunks and cut into the flour until it resembles course meal. If using a food processor, just pulse a few times until this consistency is achieved.
  • 3
    Add the buttermilk and mix just until combined. If it appears on the dry side, add a bit more buttermilk. It should be very wet. Turn the dough out onto a floured board.
  • 4
    Gently pat the dough out until it's about 1/2" thick. Fold the dough about 5 times, gently press the dough down to a 1 inch thick. Use a round cutter to cut into rounds.
  • 5
    If you like soft sides, place the biscuits touching each other on a lightly greased cookie sheet. If you like crunchy sides, put them about 1 inch apart these will not rise as high as the biscuits put close together. I brushed the biscuits with milk, and cracked some fresh black pepper on top. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes ( do not over bake )

    Enjoy with sausage gravy, jam, honey or just a slather of butter.
