How to Make Best Buttermilk Biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 475^.(most ovens). Slice up the butter and put in the freezer.
    Combine flour,baking soda,baking powder and salt into a bowl. Remove butter from the freezer and cut butter into the flour mixture until it looks like small peas.
  2. Add the buttermilk and continue to cut the mixture together. Place dough on a Bisquick dusted surface and gently squeeze together. Now gently press the dough into a rectangle until it is about 3/4-inch thick or a little less.Do not roll dough- just pat-pat-pat it to size! Should get 10 to 12 biscuits.
  3. Use a round or square cut floured cutter and cut out biscuits. Place the cutouts in the freezer for 25 to 30 minutes.(this is the secret to flaky,light biscuits)
  4. Remove biscuits from the freezer and place on parchment paper so they are not touching each other. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with your favorite honey butter mixture or jam.
