These are so simple to make in the food processor. Using a food processor makes for a more tender biscuit, because you aren't handling the dough as much. A few pulses, and you have biscuit dough.

You can make this recipe as you would any other scratch biscuit if you don't have a food processor.

Enjoy!

Serves:

10 - 12 biscuits

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

2 c
unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting the board
1/4 tsp
baking soda
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1 tsp
kosher salt
6 Tbsp
unsalted butter, very cold
1 c
buttermilk , maybe a little less

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 450°F.

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, or in the bowl of a food processor.
2
Cut the butter into chunks and cut into the flour until it resembles course meal.

If using a food processor, just pulse a few times until this consistency is achieved.
3
Add the buttermilk and mix just until combined.

If it appears on the dry side, add a bit more buttermilk. It should be very wet.

Turn the dough out onto a floured board.
4
Gently pat the dough out until it's about 1/2" thick. Fold the dough about 5 times, gently press the dough down to a 1 inch thick.

Use a round cutter to cut into rounds.
5
If you like soft sides, place the biscuits touching each other on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

If you like crunchy sides, put them about 1 inch apart these will not rise as high as the biscuits put close together.

I brushed the biscuits with milk, and cracked some fresh black pepper on top.

Bake for 10 - 12 minutes ( do not over bake )
6
Enjoy with sausage gravy, jam, honey or just a slather of butter.
