      Directions

      Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

      Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl.

      Using a food processor, pastry cutter, or your fingertips incorporate 3/4 cup chilled butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

      Add the buttermilk and stir just until moistened. Using 1/2 cup dough for each biscuit, drop biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing mounds about 2-inches apart.

      Bake the biscuits until they are golden brown on top, about 15 to 20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Serve the biscuits warm.

      Buttermilk Biscuit Variations:

      Bacon, Cheddar and Chive: Add 7 slices of cooked and chopped bacon, 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, and 1/4 cup chives to mixture after cutting in the butter. Serve with melted butter.

      Blueberry with Lemon and Thyme: Combine 6 cups blueberries, 2/3 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons water in large saucepan. Stir the mixture until softened and syrup coats spoon. Cover and chill. Add 1 tablepsoon grated lemon zest and 2 teaspoons chopped thyme leaves to the dry ingredients. Serve the lemon-thyme biscuits sliced horizontally with sweetened blueberries served alongside.

      Strawberry Shortcake with Sweet Buttermilk Biscuits: Add an additional 2 tablespoons sugar to the dry ingredients. Brush the tops of the drop biscuits with heavy cream and top with turbinado sugar. Serve with 2 pounds sweetened strawberries and fresh whipped cream.

        I, tried this recipe in Norway, for my host and new fam. I, had not made buttermilk biscuts in so long. This recipe was so good, everyone thought I was a pro, this biscut is, light, flaky, and has the best taste, they wanted more, and I'm so glade this recipe added a star to mamas' crown. thank you, Kelsey. Oh!, and Kelsey I, didn't care for biscuts,now I do. Thanks again.
