  • In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add butter to flour mixture, and use your hands to mix just until medium pebble-size pieces form. Do not overmix. Add buttermilk and mix just until dough comes together.

  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Flatten and shape dough to form a 2-inch-thick square. Lightly flour top of dough; fold in corners and repeat process to create layers.

  • Using a 2 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter, cut out 8 biscuits, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place on prepared baking sheet and brush tops with buttermilk; transfer to oven and bake, rotating baking sheet halfway through, until golden, about 10 to 12 minutes.

This is the best biscuit I have ever had. It is light, fluffy and delicious!! I live in the the West and can't get White Lily flour so I used 1/2 APF and 1/2 Cake flour. I used a little less salt per reviews. I would roll the dough out more, because mine started to fall over and I used about 2 inch rolled out dough. They were still wonderful!!! Thanks for the great recipe

These biscuits were light and fluffy but I had to cook them 15 minutes to get them done. Also, they were too salty for my family. I suggest you try making them with about half as much salt as this recipe calls for.
