How to Make Tender, Flaky, Buttermilk Biscuits
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and fold over itself 2 or 3 times ( this is what makes the layers.) Just fold and push 3 times.
With your hands, pat out dough to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut out dough using a 3 inch biscuit cutter - DO NOT TWIST THE CUTTER! Twisting will seal sides, and keep biscuits from rising correctly.
