 Author: Laura Doerr with Ways to my Heart

Serving size: 12 biscuits


For the caramelized onions

 2 sm-med yellow onions chopped

 2 tbsp unsalted butter

For the biscuits

 2 cup all purpose flour

 2 tsp baking powder

 1/2 tbsp sugar

 1/2 tsp baking soda

 1 tsp salt

 7 tbsp unsalted butter chilled in freezer, cubed

 3/4 cup buttermilk plus extra for brushing


For the caramelized onions

1. Add chopped onions and butter to a large skillet and cook over medium-medium low heat

for about 20-30 minutes or until golden brown, soft and sweet. Season with salt and pepper

and let cool.

For the biscuits

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Cut

the cold butter cubes into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter or fork until mixture

becomes coarse crumbs.

3. Make a well in the center of the bowl and pour in the buttermilk and cooled caramelized

onions, and stir until just combined. Dough will be sticky.

4. Flour a work surface, and turn dough onto the work surface. Create a dough ball and press

into a rectangle, fold dough over itself about 4 times, that will create the flaky layers. Roll

dough out about 3/4-1 inch thick. Cut with a 3-inch biscuit cutter. Repeat until all the dough

is used, you should get about 12 biscuits. 

5. Place biscuits on a parchment lined sheet pan, and brush with buttermilk. Bake for about

15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Best enjoyed the same day.
