No Photo

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces and chilled
  • 2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon buttermilk


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Work the butter into the flour with a pastry cutter or your fingertips, until it resembles coarse meal.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk and mix with a fork until the buttermilk has just been incorporated. Gently knead the dough, in the bowl, a few times to bring the dough together. Divide the dough into 6 equal balls and gently press each ball into 1/2-inch thick disks.
  5. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of a biscuit comes out clean.
  6. Allow the biscuits to cool on a rack for 10 minutes.
  7. Serve warm.
