A really good biscuit is the perfect way to start the morning. Whether the biscuit is paired with sausage gravy, jam or a nice piece of chicken, they need to be fluffy and tender.
Makes 6 biscuits
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 425 degree.
Dice the butter into small 1/2 inch pieces. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder,salt, and baking soda. Using your hands pinch the butter throughout the flour mixture.
Once the butter is at a crumb level, drizzle in the buttermilk and gently stir to combine with a fork, or with your hands if you are feeling adventurous.
Roll out dough to 3/4 of an inch and cut out with a 4″ cutter, or use a 3″ ice cream scoop and create 6 mounds of dough. Dust the bottom of a glass with flour and gently press down each mound.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
