Ok hear me out. Sage brown butter is beyond delicious and goes with just about anything - sweet or savory. I made a Sage Brown Butter Pumpkin Pie that was a hit last year, so I can attest that it works both ways! Now, we're back with another sage brown butter recipe that I know that you're going to love.
This Sage Brown Butter Biscuit recipe combines the herbal notes from the sage with the nutty flavors of brown butter and parmesan to make the most fluffy and flavor filled biscuits.
Firstly, brown the butter. I recommend using a lightly colored pan/skillet so that you can gauge the color of the butter. Over medium low heat, melt butter in the pan and stir occasionally. The butter will begin to foam up a bit. Continue to cook until the foam begins to turn a golden brown. There should also be some brown bits on the bottom.
Add about 10-15 sages leaves to the brown butter and let them crisp up. At this point, your house should smell heavenly!
For this recipe, let the butter cool and solidify completely before using. Also, I definitely used my favorite Minerva Dairy Sea Salt Butter for this recipe which added so much flavor to the biscuits!
So now that we know how to make sage brown butter, let's talk about how to make these sage brown butter biscuits.
Once the sage brown butter is made, let it cool and put it in a heat safe container. Don't forget to include the brown bits too - they add so much flavor! Give it a good stir and add it to the refrigerator to solidify - this should take about 2 hours.
After the sage brown butter has solidified, literally add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend until a dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and fold into an envelope. Use a rolling pin to roll dough out until it's about a ½ inch thick.
Use a biscuit cutter (or cookie cutter) and cut the biscuits out of the dough. Freeze the biscuits for about 10 minutes, brush with buttermilk, and then bake for 20 minutes.
Then you're done!
