Buttermilk Biscuits

I don’t want to say that these biscuits are no fail but they are by far the easiest biscuit recipe that I’ve tried. The frozen butter is key for making light, flaky layers!

Buttermilk Biscuits


  • Author: Johanne Bosse
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 biscuits 1x

Description

The key to this recipe is not to overhandle the dough.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup frozen butter
  • 2 cups buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Place the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.
  3. Use a food processer to finely shred the butter, use a fork to stir it into the flour .
  4. Push the flour to the side and begin adding the buttermilk 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough comes together.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, gently knead just to bring the dough together.
  6. Use a biscuit cutter to cut rounds, place on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

Notes

  • Invest in a proper biscuit cutter, using a glass compresses the edges of the biscuits and prevents them from rising as high.
  • Allowing the biscuits to touch on the pan results in soft sided biscuits, separating them results in a crispier edge.
