Butter Buttermilk Biscuits



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse sand.
  4. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it gently a few times.
  6. Pat the dough out into a 1-inch thick rectangle.
  7. Using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out as many biscuits as you can and place them on a baking sheet.
  8. Gather the scraps and pat them out again, cutting out additional biscuits until all the dough has been used.
  9. Bake the biscuits for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
  10. Serve warm. Enjoy!
