Buttermilk Biscuits

Ah, biscuits!    Growing up every Saturday morning I was awaken by the smell of biscuits in the oven.  Both my mom and grandmother have a natural talent for making amazing biscuits.  You know, that talent where no measuring cups or scales are used.  Unfortunately, I did not inherit this trait from either of them.  I have never really been a great biscuit maker.  Sure, I have tried tons of recipes but they have never been as great as the biscuits I grew up eating.  I finally stumbled upon this recipe which is pretty darn close to perfect.  I have made these biscuits many times now and I know this is the recipe I will always use.

Ingredients
  1. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 tsp baking powder
  3. 1/4 tsp baking soda
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 1 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar
  6. 10 tbsp butter
  7. 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  3. Melt 2 tbsp. of butter in a microwave safe bowl, set aside.
  4. Cut 8 tbsp. of butter into small cubes. Add the cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender, or use two butter knives at a criss cross, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the butter resembles pea-sized crumbs.
  5. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour the buttermilk into the well. Using a mixing spoon or your hands fold the dry ingredients into the well of buttermilk just until the mixture comes together.
  6. Pat the mixture over a floured surface to about 1-inch thick. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter, I find a jelly jar works just as good, transfer the biscuits to a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper. Brush the melted butter generously over each biscuit. Bake for 18-22 minutes until the tops are nice and golden. Serve warm.
