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!
Caramelized Onion Biscuits Recipe!
- 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!
