Want to know a true story?  I made these biscuits twice.  In one week.  I nearly ate them all.  I’m thinking about making them again.   Right now.

These biscuits are what magical bread dreams (we all have them, right?) are about.  They’re flaky, they’re moist, they’re full of flavor and you just can’t get enough of them.   More specifically these are buttermilk biscuits which makes them ultra deluxe and ultra moist.   Like my gif shows, buttermilk makes everything better, don’t you agree?

These biscuits also have jalapeno peppers in it for a slight bite of heat.  The jalapenos are a great balance for that buttermilk giving it a little something special.  I chop the jalapenos up pretty fine so they’re evenly distributed and not overwhelming.   Between these biscuits and candied jalapenos I’m eating quite a bunch of jalapenos this Summer!

The key to biscuits is to freeze the butter before hand.  This will allow it to more easily be cut into the flour.  The butter will be so easy to cut, shred and chop when it’s frozen!

Look at how crumbly this butter gets after freezing and a swirl in the food processor.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  If you can’t use a food processor use a grater, you’ll get similar results!

And look at how it all crumbles up together.   Freezing butter everyone – it’s life changing!  It will get your biscuits flaky and moist! Isn’t that what life is about?

Knead your dough for just 2 minutes gently.  Every time I hear the phrase kneading dough I think of my cat FiFi Bofinkles who is a master at this.

Then spread it out.  I don’t use a rolling pin for this, just my hands.

Then start to cut the dough into biscuits.  You can use a biscuit cutter for this, a circular cookie cutter (what I used) or the top of a drinking glass.
