southern Biscuits

My biscuit recipe.

2 cups all-purpose flour , plus more for dusting the board (White Lily seems to make fluffier biscuits)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder (use one without aluminum if you can find it.)
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter , very cold
1 cup buttermilk

1. In a large bowl mix flour. baking soda, baking powder, salt, and butter until the mixture is lumpy and looks kind of like corn meal.

2. Add buttermilk and stir until doughy.

3. Pat out on floured surface. Pat out by pressing down, fold in half press down, fold in half and press down again. 

4. Cut out biscuits, put on ungreased pan and bake at 375 for 10 minutes.


  • Handle the dough as little as possible.  The less you pat the dough the higher it will rise, and the fluffier your biscuits will be.
  • After you have rolled out the biscuits, use your thumb to make a small indention on the top of the biscuit and put a little oil in the indention.
  • Do not use a rolling pin.
