Amish Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe

A lot of Amish live in our area and I often go to their stores, roadside stands and produce auction. I love stocking up on produce we don’t grow ourselves and other yummy treats like their bread. They also have a country store that carries spices in bulk. It’s a great way to save some money and get fresh spices.

Want to re-create their buttermilk biscuits? Enjoy this Amish Buttermilk Biscuit recipe below.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. (1-3/4 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour; more as needed for shaping the dough
  • 1 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 2-1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 4 oz. (8 Tbs.) very cold unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup very cold buttermilk

Instructions:

  1. Mix the dough: Heat the oven to 400°F and position a rack in the middle of the oven. Line the baking sheet with parchment DO NOT USE WAX PAPER. Put the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl and stir with a whisk to distribute the ingredients evenly.
  2. Cut the butter into small bits and toss with the flour this will help create air pockets which will form flaky layers. With a sharp knife cut the cold butter crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices, and cut again, and one more time until you have tiny pieces of butter. Toss the butter bits into the bowl with the flour mixture. Cut the butter bits into the flour.
  3. Add the cold buttermilk and stir with a large spoon until all or most of the flour is absorbed, and the dough forms a coarse lump.
  4. Dust a work surface and knead the dough about 8-10 minutes. Kneading the dough is very important. Don’t skimp.
  5. Roll or press the dough into a 1/2-inch-thick oval. Cut a 2-inch or 2-3/4-inch round biscuit using a cutter, dipping the cutter in flour between each biscuit. Transfer the biscuits to the baking sheet, placing them about 1/2 inch apart.
  6. Bake at 450°F. Bake for 8 minutes; rotate the pan 180 degrees; continue baking until both the tops and bottoms of the biscuits are a rich golden brown and the biscuits have doubled in height.

What do you enjoy eating with your biscuits? I love jelly, honey and definitely sausage gravy. Yum!
