Recipe Ingredients for Buttermilk Biscuits

1/2 cup cold butter
2 1/4 cups self-rising flour
1 1/4 cups buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Buttermilk Biscuits

  1. 1/2 cup cold butter

  2. 2 1/4 cups self-rising soft-wheat flour

  3. 1 1/4 cups buttermilk

  4. Self-rising soft-wheat flour

  5. 1. Cut butter with a sharp knife or pastry blender into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Sprinkle butter slices over flour in a large bowl. Toss butter with flour. Cut butter into flour with a pastry blender until crumbly and mixture resembles small peas. Cover and chill 10 minutes. Add buttermilk, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.

  6. 2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times, gradually adding additional flour as needed. With floured hands, press or pat dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches). Sprinkle top of dough with additional flour. Fold dough over onto itself in 3 sections, starting with 1 short end. (Fold dough rectangle as if folding a letter-size piece of paper.) Repeat entire process 2 more times, beginning with pressing into a 3/4-inch-thick dough rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches).

  7. 3. Press or pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, and place, side by side, on a parchment paper-lined or lightly greased jelly-roll pan. (Dough rounds should touch.)

  8. 4. Bake at 450 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven
