These flaky biscuits benefit from, but do not require, butter and spicy-sweet pepper jelly.

Cook's Notes

Mixing a mashed hard-cooked egg yolk into the dough creates a tender, delicate texture in the resulting biscuits. Unbaked biscuits can be frozen up to 1 month. Brush with buttermilk, and bake 32 to 35 minutes.

    @notrunofthemill: That would be the same amount of milk as the buttermilk, minus 1 tsp.

    This will be my new go-to biscuit recipe! I left out the egg yolk, and they were still really delicious, flakey and flavorful. Great for a breakfast/brunch or on the side with a soup or stew. I used egg was on top rather than buttermilk for a nice brown sheen with a little crispness.

    Very easy and delicious. I didn't have any buttermilk on hand so used regular 1% and added 1tsp vinegar to it. Also didn't add the grated egg yolk - didn't miss it at all, they were light and moist. I brushed with butter after baking.
