Easy Buttermilk Rosemary Biscuits: Light and Better for You Recipe

Buttermilk Rosemary Biscuits on Plate

If you’re in the mood for the best biscuits that are lighter and easier to make, then I have what you owe it to yourself to taste with my buttermilk rosemary biscuits. Similar recipes use butter or shortening and are made as a rolled dough that is cut to shape. However, these homemade biscuits avoid that hassle and use canola oil, which is better for the heart and practically effortless since they are made as a drop biscuit. In this post, I’ll clue you in about how to make these delicious better-for-you biscuits with buttermilk and rosemary that keep cholesterol levels in check and reduce time spent laboring in your kitchen.

Tips and Tricks: Taking Your Biscuits to the Next Level

When you are hungry for biscuits but don’t have buttermilk, you can still make this easy biscuit recipe with this fix for a buttermilk substitute. All you need to do is add two teaspoons of vinegar to the milk and the problem is solved. I do this all the time and it creates just as wonderful light and flaky buttermilk rosemary biscuits.

Fresh rosemary is a woodsy aromatic herb that always is superior in flavor due to its subtle notes of pepper, lemon and mint to the dried herb, but I never let that stop me from enjoying these quick and easy biscuits. If you have the fresh herb, two teaspoons is equivalent to the amount of the dried form of the herb.

Sometimes, baking soda when added directly to the ingredients can cause a bad sour taste if it lands up in one spot. What I like to do for these buttermilk biscuits from scratch is sift the baking soda with the dry ingredients, which distributes it more evenly.

Only mix the ingredients until moistened because overworking biscuit dough can produce tough biscuits instead of light and tender delights that they are.

These slightly sweet rosemary biscuits are fabulous to serve with dinner, lunch or just to snack on. I really love them cut in half for a mini sandwich with a thick slice of Cheddar, Montgomery Jack, American or whatever your favorite cheese is.

Put these light buttermilk rosemary biscuits to the test at your house. I am confident that once you taste them, you will be pleased that you stumbled upon this recipe. Please also share my recipe with family and friends and do come back to my blog for more.
