Brown Sugar Bacon Biscuits
Makes about 10
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar, divided
  • 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 7 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • ¾ cup whole buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted bacon drippings
  • Garnish: crumbled cooked bacon, cane syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together bacon, flour, ¼ cup brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in cold butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in buttermilk just until combined.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, pat dough to ¾-inch thickness. Cut dough into four quarters; stack one on top of another, and pat dough to ¾-inch thickness. Repeat procedure 3 times. Using a 2½-inch round cutter, cut dough straight down, without twisting cutter, and place in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together melted bacon drippings and remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Spoon over biscuits.
  5. Bake until golden brown, about 18 minutes. Garnish with bacon and cane syrup, if desired.
