Buttermilk Biscuits
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour (plus a little bit more for dusting)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, very cold
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Combine dry ingredients with a whisk and the cut your cold butter into chunks into the flour. Cut into your flour mixture until it is the size of peas.
  3. Add the buttermilk and then mix until just combined. Do not overmix. Your dough should be very wet so if you think you need to add a little more buttermilk go ahead.
  4. Place your dough onto a floured surface and then pat it out until it is about ½ inch thick. Do not use a rolling pin for biscuits.
  5. Fold your dough over 5 times (just like you are folding a piece of paper.)
  6. Using a biscuit cutter, make rounds. Just use an up and down motion do not turn your bisuit cutter from side to side.
  7. Place biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on the tops.
