Sage Onion Biscuits
Sage Onion Biscuits are a great addition to the buttermilk cornbread in Traditional Buttermilk Cornbread Dressing. Sage, onion, garlic and black pepper also create a dinner biscuit that goes well along side poultry and pork.
- 2 cups self rising flour
- 1 tablespoons finely diced fresh sage
- 1 tablespoon grated or finely diced sweet onion
- 1/2 cup one stick cold butter, diced
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 cup cold buttermilk
- 1 to 2 teaspoons honey
Add flour to a large bowl and gently stir in sage and onion.
Rub in butter until flour resembles coarse cornmeal.
Stir in garlic powder and black pepper.
Add honey to cold buttermilk and mix in with flour.
Turn out onto a floured surface. Sprinkle flour on top of dough. Knead a few times until dough is no longer sticky, adding flour as necessary.
Roll out to about 3/4 inches thick. Cut with a 2 inch cookie cutter for round biscuits or cut into squares with a knife or pizza cutter. Place apart on a baking sheet that has been greased or covered with a baking mat. Brush tops with cooking oil.
Cook at 450 degrees for 12 minutes or until tops are brown.
