Buttermilk Biscuits

I love buttermilk biscuits, and I finally came across this recipe a few years ago. This recipe is soooo simple, but absolutely fantastic! These biscuits are great for brunch with homemade jam, or just for a lazy weekend breakfast! Enjoy!

Buttermilk Biscuits

From Bon Appetit, Oct 2000
Makes 12 biscuits

3 cups all purpose flour (I use ultragrain all-purpose flour)
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
1 cup low-fat buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425°F. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in large bowl to blend. Using fingertips, rub 3/4 cup chilled butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse meal (or combine in food processor). Add buttermilk and stir until evenly moistened.

Pat dough into a rough square, using a rolling pin to even it out, then cut into 12 square biscuits.

Place on parchment-lined making sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake until biscuits are golden brown on top, about 15 minutes. Cool slightly. Serve warm.
