Buttermilk Biscuits

Category: Cookies, Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 4 c Flour
  • 2 tb Baking powder
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 3/4 ts Salt
  • 1/2 tb Sugar
  • 2/3 c Butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 c Buttermilk
  • 1/4 c Butter


Sift flour with baking powder, soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in 2/3 cup butter
until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk, stirring until dry
ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface;
knead lightly 4 or 5 times. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut with a 2
1/2 inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet.
Brush tops with 1/4 inch melted butter. Bake at 450 F for 8 minutes or
until golden brown.

Note: When cutting biscuits, never twist the cutter; that will seal the
edges and prevent proper rising. If the cutter is not cutting all the way,
consider a new cutter.
