Looking for a new biscuit recipe and found a video by Martha Stewart. These biscuits are so fluffy, flaky and light! The key is to not over-mix or over work the dough.
all purpose flour
1Whisk together dry ingredients. (If you'd like to add dill, sage or any other herb or flavoring, now is the time to do it.)
2Using a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients. Make sure it is well incorporated but still a crumbly mixture.
3Add buttermilk. Stir into the dry ingredients being careful not to beat the dough or over mix it.
4Turn dough out onto a well-floured cutting board and move it around to make it into a very soft, pliable dough. You may knead it only 4-6 times. Remember, don't overwork the dough.
5Pat out to 1" thick and cut out biscuits with a 2 1/2 inch cutter. Place on cookie sheet. (You don't need to grease the cookie sheet, but I did spray mine with butter flavored cooking spray.) Brush milk lightly over top of biscuits.
6Bake at 375* for 18-20 minutes.
