How to Make Best Buttermilk Biscuits


  • 1Preheat oven to 450. In a large bowl, stir together all dry ingredients.
  • 2Knead in butter, but leave clumps pea sized as the clumps produce a flaky biscuit.
  • 3Stir in buttermilk.
  • 4Knead on a lightly floured surface about 10 times. Roll out, but you want this dough thick. At least an inch to an inch and a half thick.
  • 5Use a floured biscuit cutter or cup to cut out biscuits. Placing them closely together on a greased or parchment covered cookie sheet will prevent them from toppling over as they rise.
  • 6Bake for about 10 mins. Enjoy!
