The best homemade biscuits Ive ever had! These are beyond delish - super flight and flaky layers with a warm buttery flavor.

Ingredients

1 3/4
cup flour
1
tablespoon granulated sugar (white sugar)
3/4
teaspoon kosher salt
1/4
teaspoon baking soda
8
tablespoons (1 stick) butter
3/4
cup buttermilk
Extra flour for rolling

Directions

  • 1 Before you get started, place the buttermilk and butter in the freezer to make sure its nice and cold when you need it.
  • 2 Pre-heat your oven to 500°F.
  • 3 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 4 Mix all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, powder, salt, soda) together in a bowl. Use a whisk to make sure everything is evenly distributed.
  • 5 Make sure your butter is cold - not frozen but very cold. Cut the entire stick of butter into tiny squares. Each tablespoon should yield at least 6 or 8 small squares. Toss these into the bowl of dry mixture as you cut.
  • 6 Be sure the tiny butter squares are fully coated, not sticking to each other, and are evenly distributed.
  • 7 Add the 3/4 cup buttermilk to the mixture and stir until it forms a ball. Most all the mixture should form into the ball.
  • 8 Flour a smooth surface or cutting board, your hands, and the top of the dough ball and use your hands to form the ball into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 9 Fold the rectangle into a tri-fold - like folding a letter to be placed in an envelope. Smoosh it back out with your hands again into the same sized shape rectangle, and tri-fold again. Do a total of 3 tri-folds.
  • 10 Next, roll out the dough so its about 2/3 of an inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass to cut biscuit shapes. Dont twist when at the bottom - this will decrease the flakiness. Instead, just push down and back up again.
  • 11 Place biscuits close together on the baking sheet. Insert into the center of the oven and decrease the temp to 450°F. Bake for 8 minutes
  • 12 Rotate the biscuits and bake another 4-6 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • 13 Remove and place biscuits on a cooling rack.
