Homemade buttermilk biscuits

Makes 6


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter (1/2 stick), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3/4 cup well-shaken buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon milk for brushing tops of biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Sift flour into a medium bowl. Add sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the cold butter pieces and blend together with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add the buttermilk and stir with a fork until the dough forms, it will be moist.
  5. Transfer the dough to a well-floured surface and gently knead 5 or 6 times with floured hands. Roll the dough into a log about 8 inches long and cut into 6 equal pieces. Gently press down each dough circle to flatten them out a little bit. Transfer the biscuits to an ungreased baking sheet.
  6. Brush the tops of the biscuits with milk and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until they are a light golden brown color. Once done, remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling.
