Flaky Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a large bowl stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cream of tartar. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add buttermilk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough until 1 1/4 inches thick. Cut dough with a floured 2 1/2-inch round cutter. Dip cutter into flour between cuts and reroll scraps as necessary.
  3. Place dough rounds 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove biscuits from baking sheet. Cool slightly.
  4. To serve, split biscuits and place on six serving plates. Spoon Sausage Gravy over split biscuits. If desired, sprinkle with chives.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip:

To make 1 1/4 cups sour milk, place 4 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1 1/4 cups total liquid; stir. Let stand for 5 minutes before using.

Make-Ahead Tip:

Prepare biscuits as directed; cool completely. Place biscuits in a resealable plastic freezer bag; seal, label, and freeze for up to 2 months. Prepare Sausage Gravy as directed. Place in an airtight container; seal and chill for up to 48 hours. To serve, thaw biscuits at room temperature (allow about 2 hours). If desired, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place biscuits on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. In a medium saucepan reheat Sausage Gravy over medium-low heat for 5 to 10 minutes or until heated through. If necessary, stir in additional milk to make desired consistency.
