Recipe Ingredients for Basic Buttermilk Biscuits

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of sugar (can add more to taste)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 stick of butter, cold (8 tablespoons)
3/4 cup of buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Basic Buttermilk Biscuits

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together.

  3. Cut the stick of butter into pieces, and work into the flour mixture with your hands or a pastry blender until it resembles pea-sized crumbs.

  4. Add the liquid, mixing until a bit loose and sticky.

  5. Pour dough out on a floured surface, and knead for a minute. Dough should be smooth and no longer wet. You can sprinkle more flour on the surface if you find it?s sticking.

  6. Take dough into a ball, and hit it with a rolling pin, turning it and folding it in half every few whacks. Do this for a couple of minutes.

  7. Roll out dough until it?s 1/4 of an inch thick, and then fold it in half.

  8. Using a round cutter (can use a glass or a cup if don?t have a biscuit cutter) cut out your biscuits from folded dough.

  9. Place on a greased baking sheet close together (so they rise up not out), and bake for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
