Buttermilk Biscuits

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
  1. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. Cut in butter until the mixture is sandy and the pieces of butter are the size of small peas.
  3. Make a well in the center and mix in buttermilk until the mix just comes together.
  4. Turn dough onto a floured work surface and knead it a couple times so it comes together.
  5. Roll dough to about 3/4 inch thickness and cut with a floured cookie cutter
  6. 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)
