This makes a biscuit that can be savory, or sweet. The biscuit can even be flavored if ou want. Here's how they are made.

Biscuit dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, cold, cut into ybs.
3/4 cup buttermilk, cold (If you don't have buttermilk, mix 3/4 cup whole milk with 1 tsp of lemon juice; allow to sit for 5 minutes before using)

Add flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder into a mixing bowl. If you are going for a sweet filling, double the sugar, and add 1/4 tsp. each nutmeg, and ground cinnamon. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter to form a pea gravel texture. Fold in the buttermilk. Don't overmix as this will make rubbery biscuits.

Roll dough on a lightly floured surface to approximately a 1/8 inch thick rectangle. Cut the dough in half. Place one half on top of the other; roll out again. Cut dough in half again, placing the two halves on tuo o each other, and roll out one last time.

The baking powder, will make it fluffy. The steam from the butter layers will make flaky layers.

Use a biscuit cutter to cut rounds. Place a spoonful of filling onto a roud's center. Place another round on top. Seal the edges.

Savory fillings:
Shredded Parmesan and Prosciutto
American cheese and either bacon, or sausage
Bulk, browned breakfast sausage (serve with pan gravy)
Fresh Mozzarella cube (dollop)
Use your imagination

Sweet fillings:
Maple sugar
Orange marmalade
Thick fruit jam
Strawberry halves
fresh berries
Cold Nutella
Chocolate chunks
Butterscotch morsels
Use your imagination

Hope you try these. Even if you don't fill the, these are superb biscuits, perfect for any where you'd use a flaky biscuit. These are better than store bought in he cardboard tubes.:yum:

An easier way to make these would be to cut the dough rectangle in half. Plce filling equally spaced onto one layer; topp with 2nd layer; brush edges around filling with egg wash, cut with biscuit cutter, like making ravioli. Press dough tightly around filling, removing as much air as possible. Press edges together/ Bake at 350' F. for 15 minutes, on parchment -lined baking sheet, until golden brown.
