Method

Buttermilk Biscuits 6 Steps

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Step 2

    Wake up your yeast by dissolving it in the warm water. Once it’s foamy, in about 5 minutes, it’s ready to use.

  • Step 3

    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.

  • Step 4

    Add the buttermilk and the yeast mixture, and mix all the ingredients together until the dough forms a ball.

  • Step 5

    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.

  • Step 6

    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.
