Ingredients

How to make it

  • Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 425°F.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine buttermilk and green onions in medium bowl. (Note: If you really want to infuse the buttermilk with green onion flavor, cover and let sit in the fridge for an hour or two before proceeding.)
  • Whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper in large bowl to blend. Add 1/2 cup chilled butter and rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk mixture and stir until moist clumps form.
  • Gather dough together. Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead gently just to combine, about 3 to 4 turns.
  • Roll out to 3/4-inch thickness. Using floured 2-inch cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out rounds. Reroll scraps and cut out additional rounds.
  • Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter. Sprinkle each lightly with coarse sea salt and ground black pepper.
  • Bake biscuits until golden and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Ms. Vicki.....

    Can these be made whilst camping? I can only imagine the aroma wafting from my portable oven, and the bears that we need to fend off '-)

    Just printed the recipe, and will try it this weekend ( in my kitchen..... )

    Thanks for the post !

    Love cooking with buttermilk! These biscuits look so comforty and tasty! A great accompaniment to any meal, or a meal in itself if served with some sausage and gravy!

    Vickie, those biscuits sound like a winner for sure! I'm trying these tomorrow. I have made butter milk biscuits with cheese and sausage, and we love them,so I know we will love your recipe with the onions.

    Hey Vickie, This sounds perfect! Made Ina Gartens cheddar biscuits and they were more like crackers! Think the self rising flour is the answer. TQ, Mare

    Wow Vikie!! I love savory biscuits. I can think of so many possibilities for these. First and foremost is slathered with butter and downed by the dozen...;-) I can't think of a flavor combo I would rather have in a biscuit... Thanks for sharing this recipe... Jim

    Thank you for the advance on this recipe I got to make these Sunday and we had them this morning and tonight as well. All I have to say is you are the Mayor of these Buttermilk Biscuits With Green Onions Black Pepper And Sea Salt.
    Five forks and a smile and flag as beautiful and unique.
    Might as well give a hug too while I am at it for the advance of this recipe.
