Cast Iron Buttermilk Biscuits
Ingredients45 m servings 122 cals
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place 1 tablespoon butter in two 10-inch cast iron skillets.
- Place skillets in the preheated oven to heat up and melt butter, 5 to 10 minutes.
- Mix buttermilk and eggs together in a small bowl.
- Combine flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt in a large bowl. Rub in remaining 6 tablespoons butter with your fingers until mixture is crumbly. Gently stir in buttermilk mixture until dough just starts to come together.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Pat into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough into 24 biscuits.
- Remove skillets from the oven. Arrange 12 biscuits side-by-side in each, their edges touching.
- Return skillets to the oven and bake until biscuits are puffed and lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- If you like the bottoms softer, allow the skillets to cool briefly before adding biscuits in step 6.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
