How to Make Paula Deen Biscuits

We know some of you continuously buy these biscuits in cans being too scared to try making these fluffy treats on your own. But this ends now. We won’t let you miss out on this opportunity

Making circuits from scratch is pretty simple and makes a difference. You must grab a bunch of common ingredients and follow a few simple steps. The biscuits will turn out fluffy, flaky, and buttery. 

Believe us, even if you’re not an avid baker, you’ll enjoy making Paula Deep Biscuits. Check on the ingredients in your pantry, and let’s bring Paula Deep’s kitchen to your home.

Ingredients:

(12 biscuits)

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 8 tbsp cubed butter
  • 3/4 cup milk (more or less if needed)

Instructions

Honestly, you don’t have to go the extra mile; the biscuits turn out flaky. However, some additional tips will help you make them the flakiest biscuits.

The biggest secret to these biscuits is to use cold butter. It’s just cold butter creates more layers and pockets as it melts in the oven. You’re going to need that. 

Besides, try not to overmix the batter since the biscuits might get tough. Mixing to combine the ingredients is quite enough. 

And finally, check if the baking powder you use is good. If it bubbles up once you pour 1 cup of hot water over 1 teaspoon of baking powder, it’s good to go.

Step 1: 

Preheat an oven to 425°F

Step 2:

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Then cut the butter into the mixture until it looks like cornmeal. 

Step 3: 

Create a well in the center of this mixture by punching it toward the sides of the bowl. Then slowly add milk into the middle.

Mix with the fork until combined, and start to knead the dough.

Step 4: 

Roll out your dough onto a lightly floured surface until you reach the desired thickness. After that, cut it with a small biscuit cutter.

Step 5: 

Transfer your biscuits to a buttered baking sheet or a skillet so they touch each other and the edge. 

Bake for about 12 minutes or until they get golden brown.

Ingredient Substitution

Paula Deen gives you the basis for the flakiest and the most tender biscuits. However, the choice is yours whether to change or add ingredients to make the recipe fit your dietary requirements or preferences.

1. Coconut Flour

Coconut flour is made of coconut meat, a byproduct of coconut oil and milk production. It is a fine, naturally gluten-free flour packed with fiber which will serve well in baking. Moreover, coconut flour is higher in protein and provides minerals like potassium. 

Swap ¼ cup of coconut flour for 1 cup of all-purpose flour. But there is one more thing. Coconut oil absorbs more liquid, so you might need to increase the amount of milk here.

2. Honey

It’s hard to imagine you won’t find any sugar in your pantry. But if you do or want to reduce it in your life, use honey. You can use ½ to ⅔ teaspoon of honey for every teaspoon of granulated sugar. Stick to the same proportions when scaling up the recipe. 

Note that you might need to reduce the temperature by about 25°F if you decide to use honey since it caramelizes and burns faster.

3. Sour Cream

While sour cream might not be the most common ingredient in baking, you shouldn’t cross it out from the substitutes list. It works great as a milk alternative for these light biscuits and will provide excellent moisture and richness to the baked goods.

Use sour cream in an equal 1:1 ratio for these delicious Paula Deen Biscuits.

What to Serve with Paula Deen Biscuits

Biscuits are perfect for dipping, smothering, and dunking, so there are plenty of ways to serve them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. 

Are you thinking of having sweet drinks and fruit salads?

Chili

Like when it is often served in a restaurant, hearty chili will work well with a flaky biscuit. It is perfect for any occasion, potlucks or Sunday brunch, rainy days, or when you need to feel cozy and warm. 

It is easy to make and packed with lots of tender meat, chili, and lots of your favorites. Combine biscuits and warm chili for the coziest dinner ever.

Mashed Potatoes 

We always enjoy serving this flavorful dish along the traditional and delightful sides, like biscuits, gravy, or roasted veggies. Mouth-watering mashed potatoes are a favorite family dish. 

Creamy and smooth mashed potatoes with chunks in there have an amazing texture. You win if you take red-skin mashed potatoes, cream cheese, and roasted garlic.

Steak and Shrimp

If you’re looking for a dish that is simple to make but exquisitely delicioussteak and shrimp are a must-try. We love how you can throw everything in the griddle or skillet and get it ready in under 5 minutes.

The result is flavor-infused, tender, juicy steak and delicate, flavorful shrimp. Set everything up 10 minutes before your guests arrive, and you’ll have it ready before they even settle at the table.

How to Store Paula Deen Biscuits

Like any other baked goods, Paula Deeb Biscuits are best enjoyed when fresh from the oven. However, if you get ahead of yourself and scale up the recipe, you need to know how to store biscuits correctly. 

You should store them immediately if you don’t want them to waste. But that’s not only that.

Store Paula Deen Biscuits on the Counter

Biscuits only last up to 2 days when you decide to keep them at room temperature. So it’s not suitable if you want to store them for longer. 

Still, to store biscuits at room temperature, let them cool completely on a wire rack and then wrap individual biscuits with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Store in cool or dry places.

Store Paula Deen Biscuits in the Fridge

Store them in a fridge to enjoy Paula Deep Biscuits for up to a week. You need to cover each biscuit in plastic wrap to protect it from the air.

The freezer will help keep your biscuits adequately stored for a long time. Wrap each biscuit with a plastic freezer or freezer bag and transfer it into the freezer to store for up to 3 months.
