  • Yield: Makes 1 dozen
  • Hands-on:15 Minutes
  • Total:40 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose soft-wheat flour, such as White Lily
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • Melted butter

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 450°. Sift together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender until mixture resembles small peas. Stir in buttermilk with a fork until dough forms a ball.

2. Turn dough out onto a well-floured sheet of wax paper. Sprinkle dough with flour, and flatten into a disk. Cover, and chill 15 minutes.

3. Remove wax paper, and turn dough out onto a well-floured surface; sprinkle with flour. Pat dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 3-inch cutter, reshaping scraps once. Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.

4. Bake at 450° for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Brush immediately with melted butter.
