Buttermilk Biscuits
Makes about 9 medium size Buttermilk Biscuits (depending on the size of your cut outs.) This recipe can easily be doubled. Bake these ahead of time and freeze them individually for later.
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (plus 1/4 cup for flouring surface)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (I use Kosher salt)
  • 10 tablespoons of cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Cut the pieces of cold butter into the flour mixture until all crumbly looking. (use a pastry cutter or work the cold butter with both hands into the flour.)
  4. Add the beaten egg and the buttermilk. Stir with a spoon until all mixed together.
  5. Do not over mix.
  6. Pat down the dough 1 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Dust more flour on top of dough.
  7. Cut with a small biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass.
  8. Gently lay the biscuits on a baking stone or pan.
  9. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Enjoy!
