Buttermilk Biscuits

Lynette !


Biscuit recipe from my ex-mother-in-law. Do not over work your dough or the biscuits will be tough. Only mix the scraps back in once.

How to Make Buttermilk Biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Sift together the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut the butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles small peas. Stir in buttermilk with a fork until the dough forms a ball.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a well floured sheet of wax paper. Sprinkle dough with flour, and flatten into a disk. Cover, and chill for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the wax paper, and turn dough out onto a well-floured surface; sprinkle with flour. Pat dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a 3 inch cutter, reshaping scraps once. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Brush immediately with melted butter.
