Chocolate Chip Biscuits are tender, light, and full of chocolate chips and topped with a sweet whipping cream glaze. Southern biscuits don't get any more delicious.
Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 15minutes
Total Time 25minutes
1/2cupcold unsalted butter,cubed
1/2cupsemi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4cupheavy whipping cream
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
Add butter and use a pastry blender or 2 forks to cut it in until there are no pieces larger than a pea.
Gradually add the buttermilk, stirring just until it is mixed in. Mix in chocolate chips.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead a few times. Roll dough out, fold in half and roll out to 3/4-inch thickness.
Cut dough with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter, dipping it in flour each time.. Reroll scraps and cut more biscuits. Place biscuits in a 10-inch cast iron skillet so that they are just touching.Or you can place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool slightly and then drizzle with glaze.
To make glaze, whisk together all ingredients in a bowl.
I like to stick my butter in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes before making the biscuits to be sure it is very cold.
