Homemade Pimento Cheese Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe
Homemade Biscuits Like Grandma Used to Make
These Homemade Pimento Cheese Buttermilk Biscuits are just like your Grandma used to make. I mean, not my Granny, but I’m sure somebody’s Grandma made them. LOL! This is my second time making homemade biscuits, and it turns out that I love making biscuits! We had these for breakfast with some yummy thick-cut bacon. Divine!
The recipe for these Homemade Pimento Cheese Buttermilk Biscuits comes from Buzzcat Cafe in Orange Beach, AL. I took my first trip to Orange Beach this past December. OMG! The Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area is AMAZING! The beaches are pristine and the food scene is incredible. I think I gained 10 pounds in the few days I was down there. Buzzcat Coffee & Sweets was my favorite breakfast place. The sweets and treats were crazy delicious. We had the pleasure of meeting the chef, Kim Asbury. She mentioned her famous Pimento Cheese Biscuit recipe was going to be published in an upcoming cookbook. I made sure to pick up a copy so I could make them at home!
How to Make Homemade Biscuits
I was always so intimidated by making homemade biscuits from scratch, but it turns out it isn’t very hard. As long as you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, you are good. Kim’s recipe was published in weight measurements. I have a kitchen scale, so this wasn’t a problem for me. I know some of you don’t have a kitchen scale, so I took the time to covert the recipe to cups for you. It is always best to weigh the ingredients because people scoop flour differently, but the conversion below should work just fine.
There are only a few simple ingredients in these Homemade Pimento Cheese Buttermilk Biscuits. All-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, unsalted butter, eggs, buttermilk, and pimento cheese. You are going to start by combining the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Next, you are going to work in the butter. I like to grate my cold butter instead of cutting it in with a pastry cutter. Add the eggs and buttermilk and get dirty. Use your hands to quickly mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Finally, place the dough on a floured surface and top with the pimento cheese. Fold the dough over itself several times and then cut.
Now, I don’t really like pimento cheese, but I loved it in these buttermilk biscuits. It made the biscuits super yummy! I used Palmetto Cheese brand pimento cheese. It is the only prepared pimento cheese I will buy. It tastes just like homemade. You can also make your own pimento cheese.
