The perfect, buttery, flaky biscuit. 


Breakfast?


Yes.


Lunch?


Yes.


Snack?


Yes.


Dinner?


Yes.


The answer is always yes for these biscuits.  


A friend of mine named Monica and self-described biscuit fanatic, says biscuits are her number one favorite food.  I think these rival her biscuit mecca.  




Perfect Buttermilk Biscuits
Yields 8 large biscuits

2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
3/4 cup buttermilk, chilled, plus additional for brushing

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the butter with a pastry cutter or a fork until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the buttermilk and stir until the dough comes together in a ball.

On a lightly floured surface, gather the dough into a bowl and knead gently 6 times. Pat dough into a 10 inch circle about 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough into three inch rounds with a lightly floured cutter. Place on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Brush with buttermilk.

Bake until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Thanks! :) It's a rare occurrence for me to have the everything I need! I feel like I live at the grocery store! I'd take that as a sign and make them ASAP! :)

Hi Jess,
I have made the biscuits - wonderful recipe, so simple, so tasty. I posted it on my blog with a link and thank you to you, I hope it's ok http://cookingrookie.blogspot.com/2011/05/buttermilk-biscuits.html
But I am not done here, I am certainly coming back for your hazelnut cookies recipe ;-). I have a mild obsession with Ladies' kisses, and am searching for the perfect recipe, so I have to try yours.
Thanks once again!
