  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, melted and divided
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 4 Tbsp of cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk


Preheat the oven to 450F degrees.

Melt 2 Tbsp of butter in the microwave then brush the melted butter onto a baking sheet.

Blend flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.

Use a pastry blender to cut the 4 Tbsp of cold butter pieces into the dry mixture. Mix until pea-sized lumps form.

Slowly add buttermilk while tossing mixture with a fork.

Add just enough buttermilk to make soft dough that holds together for a few seconds. Then measure out an additional ½ Tbsp of buttermilk and add to the dough. Blend well.

Flour your hands and knead the dough 6 times in the bowl or on a floured surface. Do not over-work the dough or it will result in tough, chewy biscuits.

Flour a flat surface and pat out the dough in the flour to form a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick.

Cut out the biscuits with a round cutter and place them on the buttered baking sheet.

Bake 10 minutes or until a nice golden brown.

Melt the rest of the stick of butter and brush the tops of the biscuits after removing them from the oven.

Serves 12.
