Ingredients

4 c
self rising flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
sugar
1/2 stick
chilled salted butter, cut into small pieces
1 1/2 c
real buttermilk, not low fat

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the baking powder and sugar into the flour with a fork.
2
Use a pastry blender and cut the butter into the flour until it is crumbly.
3
Make a hole in the middle of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Mix it with your hands until it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
4
Lightly flour a bread board or a clean counter.
5
Put the dough on the board and knead lightly 3 or 4 times. Do not overwork the dough or the biscuits will be tough.
6
Pat the dough down until you get your desired thickness. Cut with a 2 3/4 biscuit cutter. Put the biscuit cutter down firmly and then straight up, do not turn it after you have it in the dough.
7
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 450 degrees for 10-14 mins.
