Biscuits From Scratch
- 2 cups All-Purpose flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 8 tbsp of chilled butter
- 1 cup buttermilk plus more for brushing on the top of the biscuits
Preheat oven to 450 deg F.
Mash in butter with your fingers, working quickly because you don't want the butter to melt.
Once the mixture resembles course crumbs, make a well in the middle of the mixture and add the one cup of very cold buttermilk, stir gently with a fork just until its mixed.
Flour your surface lightly and dump out the mixture and fold it a few times so it comes together better.
Cut with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter or use a cup.
Place each cut piece on a greased baking sheet (cast iron skillet is used in the picture).
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Serve while hot.
