Buttermilk Biscuits

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt or 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, very cold
  • 1 cup buttermilk


Preheat your oven to 450°F. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients. Cut the butter into chunks and cut into the flour until it resembles course meal. Add the buttermilk and mix just until combined. If it appears on the dry side, add a bit more buttermilk. It should be very wet. Scoop 1/4 cup drops of dough onto baking sheet. Bake for about 10-12 minutes- the biscuits will be a beautiful light golden brown on top and bottom.
