Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and baking soda into a medium bowl. Work in butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix in buttermilk with your hands until just combined.

  • Turn out mixture onto a lightly floured work surface. Quickly bring dough together, and pat into a 7-inch circle about 1 inch thick. Cut out 12 rounds with a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter, gathering and patting out scraps as necessary.

  • Arrange rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until cooked through and golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Cook's Notes

When baked, the biscuits can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
