I made these red velvet buttermilk biscuits in honor of Juneteenth. Let me tell you these buttermilk biscuits are deliciously easy to make.
Red Velvet Biscuits
When I have the time, I like to stick the biscuits in the fridge. This cold butter gives the biscuits an excellent flaky texture and height during baking.
Can you make ahead?
Freezer: After biscuits cools off, store in a freezer storage bag. Keep in the freezer for 5 months max. Thaw 12-24 hours before using.
Fridge: After biscuits cools off, store in a freezer storage bag. Keep in the fridge for 7 days max.
Reheating: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes or place in a toaster.

Feel free to use a plant based red dye.
You can use another milk other than buttermilk but you will be sacrificing flavor.
