{Buttermilk Biscuits}

I don’t make biscuits very often but these went great with our Sunday dinner and didn’t take long to prepare at all.

3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs sugar
1 1/2tsp baking Powder
1 stick butter
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Combine flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, and butter until crumbly. Mix in the buttermilk, egg and just enough water to make a workable dough. Mix the dough until it is just barely combined (don’t over mix) Roll the dough onto a floured cutting board about 1 inch thick.  Cut with a 2 inch biscuit cutter, or a 2 inch round cup. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
