2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of cold unsalted butter, cubed
3/4 cup of cold buttermilk (or substitute with regular milk)
Optional: melted butter for brushing the tops
📖 Let’s get baking:
1️⃣ Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
2️⃣ In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
3️⃣ Add the cold cubed butter to the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make sure to work quickly to keep the butter cold.
4️⃣ Gradually pour in the cold buttermilk while gently stirring the mixture with a fork. Continue stirring until the dough starts to come together.
5️⃣ Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead the dough a few times until it forms a cohesive ball. Be careful not to overwork the dough, as this can result in tough biscuits.
6️⃣ Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Use a biscuit cutter or a round cookie cutter to cut out biscuits from the dough. Press straight down without twisting the cutter to ensure the biscuits rise properly.
7️⃣ Place the cut biscuits onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving a small amount of space between each biscuit.
8️⃣ Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown on top.
9️⃣ Optional: Once the biscuits are done baking, brush the tops with melted butter for added flavor and a beautiful shine.
