  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk, cold


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour in the cold buttermilk and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; you want the dough to be slightly shaggy.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times to bring it together.
  6. Roll the dough out to a 1-inch thickness, then use a floured biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits. Place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and have risen beautifully.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
