Buttermilk Biscuits


Biscuits are incredibly simple to make, and they taste way better than store-bought!

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
5 tbsp. cold butter, cut into chunks
3/4 cup + 2 tbsp buttermilk

Preheat oven to 400 F. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
Using either a pastry cutter, two knives, or your fingers, cut butter into flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pour in buttermilk and stir until a rough dough comes together and turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface.
Gently knead dough 3 or 4 times (just so the dough is less shaggy) and pat out to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut into squares (or use a biscuit cutter for round biscuits) and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 400 F for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
