Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits

Miz Helen's Kitchen

Ingredients

2-1/2 cups flour, all purpose

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut in 1/4 inch cubes

1 cup buttermilk

Directions

In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. 

Cut in the cold cubed butter with a pastry blender. Work the butter and flour until the dough looks like little peas.  

Add the buttermilk until the flour mix is completely blended. Be careful not to overwork the dough or your biscuits will be tough.  

Turn the dough onto a floured dough board and form the dough into a large ball. Flatten the dough to 1/2 inch and cut out the biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Be sure and keep dipping your cutter in the flour to keep the biscuits from sticking to the cutter.

Place the biscuits onto a lightly oiled baking pan about 2 inches apart

Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees 15 to 20 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown on top.
