Servings 12


  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and flour.
  • Whisk until combined
  • Grate or chop butter into small squares, and mix into dough until combined. If grating your butter, freezing it first will make grating easier.
  • Add buttermilk, mixing lightly until dough forms, but is still crumbly. Overworking the dough will make the biscuits less flaky.
  • On a floured surface, spread dough out until it's about 1 inch thick, then using a round cutting tool, cut out biscuits, and place on a pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush the tops of each biscuit with melted butter.
  • Bake biscuits for about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
  • Remove to cooling rack, let cool, then enjoy!
