Biscuits are so delicious and SO easy to make! This recipe is one that has been in my family for a while and is definitely a keeper. I tend to use can biscuits for a lot of recipes purely out of convenience, but forgot that it is really is almost just as quick to whip up this dough, plus it tastes WAY better than the can stuff. I promise you that!
I have an amazing recipe for Biscuits and Gravy coming your way next week so stay tuned for that. Until then, enjoy this biscuit recipe. Once you try it, you won’t want to make them any other way :)
- 2 cups flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 Tablespoons butter
- ¾ to 1 cup buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baaking powder and salt. Cut in butter with a fork until mixture is crumbly. Slowly add ¾ cup buttermilk and mix just until it forms a ball. DO NOT OVERMIX! Add more buttermilk if necessary. (Depending on your elevation the amount of buttermilk may vary.) Roll dough ½" thick on a floured board and use a biscuit cutter to make about 10 biscuits.
- Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. When done, remove from oven and brush the tops of biscuits with melted butter.
