Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the cold cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk and stir until just combined. Do not overmix; the dough should be slightly sticky.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times to bring it together. Pat it into a 1-inch-thick rectangle.
  6. Using a round biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Serve hot and enjoy the Southern comfort!
