There's nothing like freshly baked biscuits, especially when they're made from scratch and with lots of love. Our Better Buttermilk Biscuits are super flaky and perfect for eating as-is or alongside a bowl of soup, a crock of chili, a saucy stew...we can go on and on!
What You'll Need
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour plus extra for work surface
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
- 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- In a medium bowl, sift together 2-1/4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut in shortening and butter using a fork or pastry cutter, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened.
- Place dough on a lightly floured work surface. Knead dough just until dough comes together and roll out to 3/4-inch thickness with a rolling pin.
- Cut out biscuits with a 2-1/2-inch cutter or glass. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet. Knead remaining dough back into a ball to make more biscuits.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or just until biscuits begin to turn golden. Remove from baking sheet and serve warm.
