Buttermilk Biscuits 6 Steps
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Wake up your yeast by dissolving it in the warm water. Once it’s foamy, in about 5 minutes, it’s ready to use.
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt into a separate bowl. Using a coarse cheese grater, grate the cold butter into the dry ingredients and combine with your fingertips until the texture is crumbly.
Add the buttermilk and the yeast mixture, and mix all the ingredients together until the dough forms a ball.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth, about 2 minutes. Roll the dough out to a 1″ (2.5cm) thickness. Dust a sharp knife with some flour and cut the biscuits into 2″ (5cm) squares.
To bake, place the biscuits 2″ (5cm) apart on a parchment paper-lined baking skeet. Brush the tops with melted butter. Bake on the top rack of the oven for 15 to 18 minutes until puffed and lightly golden.
