Biscuits

BISCUITS

  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  3. 1 Tablespoon sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 4 Tablespoons butter, cut into 1/4” cubes
  7. 1 1/2 cups buttermilk (shake it)
  8.  you’ll also need additional flour for forming the biscuits

Preheat the Oven to 450.  Spray a 9” round pan with cooking spray.

Mix the dry ingredients together with a wooden spoon.  Dump in the butter cubes and rub the butter into the flour with your fingers. . . just squeeze the butter into the flour. . . you can do this.   When you’re done it will be crumbly, and you’ll see some butter lumps – that’s a good thing.

Pour the buttermilk over, and stir briefly with the wooden spoon to combine.  It will not be “roll-able.”

Put some flour in a bowl (a cereal bowl is fine).  Using an ice cream scoop place a scoop of dough into the bowl of flour, gently coat the biscuit with flour and lay it in the pan, flattening ever so slightly.  You want the biscuits almost touching each other so they rise up not out.  Do this with the remaining dough.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned on top.  Invert onto a plate, flip them over and tear them apart, enjoy with butter and honey, jelly or whatever you like.
