Level:
Easy

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for flouring
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, plus more for greasing
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • Serving suggestions: whipped butter, jam and honey

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt. Add the cold butter and work with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. With a rubber spatula, fold in the buttermilk until the dough just comes together. 

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Lightly dust the top of the dough with flour and roll out to about 3/4 inch thick. Cut out biscuits with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter and place on a greased baking sheet about 1/4 inch apart. Gather up the biscuit scraps and gently fold together. Roll out again and cut out a few more biscuits. 

Bake the biscuits until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve hot with plenty of whipped butter, jam and honey.
