Hallelujah Biscuits

I did it!! Woop Woop!!
I made biscuits that rose and didn't look like hockey pucks!! SaWeet!

I named them Hallelujah Biscuits because I yelled out "Hallelujah" when I took them out.
Sometimes when I make biscuits they are gummy and not very tasty, but not today, nooo not today.Finally!
Today they were light, fluffy and they ROSE!

I had rise! I may or not have done a happy dance in the kitchen while everyone looked at me like I had lost my mind.

Check it out

See, I told you..they're beeUtiful. <sigh> it really is the little things, ya know?

Hallelujah Biscuits::

1.5 cups of Unbleached Organic all-purpose Flour
1.5 cups of White-Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of salt
1 stick of butter cut up
1-1.5 cups of buttermilk  {good stuff right here :) }

OK, this time I put everything in my new food processor that Trey bought me for Christmas. Which I LOVE, and can't believe it took me soo long to give in and buy one. Every kitchen needs one of these babies.
Anyways, put the dry ingredients and the cut up butter in the food processor and pulse until it's crumbly {it will look like big crumbs}, take it out pour into your bowl and add the buttermilk.
Stir until everything is combined and nice and wet.

Sprinkle your {clean}counter tops with flour and dump your dough.
Knead it around a little and then use a rolling pin or glass jar or something long and round and roll the dough flat. You want it to be about 1" thick.

I used a wide mouth jar, because I don't own a biscuit cutter-I've never had any luck with biscuits therefore, have not had any need to spend money on an actual biscuit cutter, it would have just sat in my drawer mocking me every time I opened the drawer.

Wide mouth drawers work just as well. Now start pressing out your biscuits. If they are sticking you need more flour.

I got about 8 biscuits out of this, if you need more than this you need to double or triple the recipe.

Bake at 400 for 20 minutes {depending on your oven, my oven runs a little hot, so sometimes I have to reduce the cooking time on things, or lower the temp and increase the time, nothing can ever be simple can it??}

These were SO good, the kids LOVED them! and the hubby was impressed and a little bummed that he can't kid me about my flat, gummy, hockey-puck like biscuits anymore :)

I hope you make these so that you can eat yummy beautiful biscuits too!!

If you try this let me know how they turn out for you!  Happy Cooking..

  1. Congratulations Alecia! I have a baking soda biscuit recipe that turns out perfect biscuits each time. And I use my food processor too. Glad you found a use for yours. Let me tell you...they are instrumental in much cooking. :o)

  2. I agree! I only wish I would have broken down and bought one sooner :)
    I can't wait until this summer, I'm seeing lots and lots of homemade salsa in my future!!

  3. Looks really good! Yummmm! And what a lovely name for biscuits! :^) patsy

  7. I never thought to put my ingredients in the food processor - genius! I'll have to try this recipe - Brian and I LOVE biscuits and gravy. I've mastered the gravy but no luck with the biscuits yet!

    1. Thanks Christy! I'm not sure why I didn't think of this before, but it made them so easy to make and I think a BIG difference in how they turned out for me. Now that I have the biscuits down I will have to master the gravy! I'll have to get your recipe for that :)
