Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour*

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), cold

3/4 cups buttermilk, cold

Buttermilk Biscuits

Directions

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment.

Place the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Whisk the dry ingredients together until combined, then cut the butter into half-inch cubes and add to the bowl.

Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour until the pieces of butter are no bigger than the size of a pea.

Stir in the buttermilk until a shaggy dough forms.

Knead the dough with your hands a few times, to gather the dough into a ball and incorporate any flour that may be left in the bottom of the bowl.

Dust the work surface with flour, and flatten the dough to a thickness of 3/4 inch.

Dip a 2-inch diameter cutter into flour and cut rounds.

Place the rounds on the prepared baking sheet (with their sides barely touching) and bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until golden.
