Flaky Kefir Biscuits Recipe

It was a bit unusual for me to learn that name for this kind of flaky breakfast breads is “biscuits”, at least this is what they are called here in US.

There are variations of biscuits prepared with milk, or buttermilk, my recipe uses kefir. Kefir consistency may vary, for more thick kefir you may need to use more than a cup. For better results, use butter and kefir cooled down directly from fridge.

Flaky kefir biscuits taste perfect when served warm with a slice of butter, for breakfast or brunch.

These biscuits are amazing! The kefir really makes a difference. They’re so buttery and delicious – thanks for this recipe!

where does the extra butter come from when the recipe calls for 3 ounces of butter in the beginning and when adding it says add all the butter? Then at the kneading stage it says incorporate butter why how much and what for?

These look amazing!!!!!!!! And they look so easy and simple to make :)I will definitely give them a try!
