    Buttermilk Biscuit Bites

    Source of Recipe

    From "Wine Bites" by Barbara Scott-Goodman

    Recipe Introduction

    "These tasty little biscuits are wonderful filled with almost anything - honey-baked ham and sweet butter, smoked turkey and chutney, or chicken salad. An elegant French Sancerre or Pinot Blanc is the thing to drink with these."

    List of Ingredients

    2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    1 Tbsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp kosher salt
    5 Tbsp chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
    cup plus 2 Tbsp buttermilk
    Thinly sliced ham, smoked turkey, or chicken salad for serving


    Preheat the oven to 450F.

    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sprinkle the butter pieces over the flour mixture and, using a pastry blender or your fingertips, cut it into the mixture until it resembles coarse meal.

    Add the buttermilk and gently stir until the mixture forms a rough mass. Using your hands, gather the dough into a ball.

    Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead for about 1 minute. Pat or roll the dough out to form a rectangle about -inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter dusted with flour, cut the dough into 1-inch rounds. Gather up the dough scraps and repeat to make more biscuits.

    Arrange the biscuits about 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 7 to 9 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Split the biscuits crosswise in half. Add the desired fillings and serve at once.

    Makes 20 small biscuits.
