Buttermilk Biscuits More Recipes Like This

Ingredients: Metric Units
2 cups flour, plus more for dusting
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda (make sure it's fresh!)
1 tsp. coarse or Kosher salt
1/2 cup (that's one stick!) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup buttermilk, plus more for brushing on
1/2 cup heavy cream
Light, fluffy biscuits make any meal special.

Preheat oven to 375F.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in the butter using two knives or a pastry blender until the mix is coarse. It should look like little floury balls. Add buttermilk and cream. Stir to combine.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board. Pat into a 6 inch mound, about 1 inch high. Using a floured biscuit cutter, cut out rounds. Transfer onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spacing about 1 inch apart.

Gather scraps, reshape and cut out. Brush tops with buttermilk.

Bake at 375F until tops are golden, about 22 minutes.

Transfer biscuits to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy! -Diana
