Buttermilk Biscuits

This is not really a sweet treat but is equally delicious !

Makes about 12

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  3. Using a pastry blender or a knife, cut in butter until the mixture resembles bread crumbs
  4. Add buttermilk and stir with a fork to form a dough
  5. Bring and knead dough together with hands on a slightly floured surface
  6. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces
  7. Roll and pat each piece into round “patty”, about 1 inch in thickness
  8. Bake on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for about 13 minutes or until slightly golden

They taste best when serve warm with butter.  You can make them into cheesy biscuits by adding 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.
