Biscuits are one of my favorite things to make. I've been searching for a great cut-out biscuit recipe for a really long time and I think I've finally found it. These are super buttery, flakey and light. They go perfectly with anything that might merit a biscuit (soup or breakfast sandwiches or fried chicken. The options are endless).
I've been trying to find a recipe for sky-high buttermilk biscuits for a while and these were pretty good. They don't turn out nearly as great in a regular oven as they do in a convection oven, but they're still pretty wonderful. Give them a try the next time you make biscuits. I haven't even attempted to find a better recipe.
- 8 oz all purpose flour
- 2 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 4 oz unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Cut in butter until the mixture is sandy and the pieces of butter are the size of small peas.
- Make a well in the center and mix in buttermilk until the mix just comes together.
- Turn dough onto a floured work surface and knead it a couple times so it comes together.
- Roll dough to about 3/4 inch thickness and cut with a floured cookie cutter
- Place biscuits touching each other a baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush the tops with a little extra buttermilk and bake at 400 degrees until golden (about 15 minutes)
