Caramelized Onion Biscuits Recipe!
There is nothing more satisfying than a delicious flaky biscuit to sit alongside any meal or by itself! It’s one of our staple and favorite recipes. It’s easy, quick to make, and always guarantees a smile. I’ve tried other recipes that were more complex and I always return to this recipe.
You can’t mess with perfection! You can enjoy them anytime and not just in September. I try to make these at least once a week and everyone is always cheering for more!
- 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
- 1 medium onion, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for shaping
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
- ½ cup milk
- Heat 2 teaspoons of the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat.
- Add the chopped onions and cook, stirring often, until caramelized, about 20 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper into a large bowl.
- Stir in the onions.
- Mix in 3 tablespoons of cold butter and shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal.
- Make a well in the center and gently stir in the milk.
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, gently knead until smooth and pat out to a thickness of 1 inch - you can make them thicker too if you prefer.
- Using a floured, 2-inch round cutter, cut out as many biscuits as possible.
- Place the biscuits in a greased 9-inch cake pan so they touch.
- Melt 1 teaspoon of butter and brush over the tops.
- Bake until well browned, about 20 minutes - it can be sooner so be sure to watch after the 15 minute mark.
Here are some pics of the process. Enjoy!
