Buttermilk Biscuits

Yum! These turned out so delicious and are not difficult at all to make! I will be keeping this recipe handy for Thanksgiving πŸ˜‰ No mixer needed, just a bowl and a spoon. So let’s turn on those ovens and bake some biscuits…

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
Biscuit cutter or circle cookie cutter

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups all-purpose flour (plus more for rolling)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees fahrenheit. Cut the butter into small pieces and put in the freezer while you whisk the other ingredients.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. With a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles small crumbs. Make a hole in the flour and pour in the buttermilk. Stir until everything starts to stick together.

Pour the dough onto a generously floured surface. Fold the dough into itself until it is not too sticky to handle. Pat down into a 1 inch thick circle. With the biscuit or cookie cutter, push down into the dough and come straight up without twisting. Keep doing this until all the dough is used. Arrange the biscuits onto the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Serve with butter, honey or gravy. Enjoy!
