  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 3/4 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, and salt.
  3. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or your fingertips, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour in the cold buttermilk and stir until the dough just comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times. Pat it into a 1-inch thick rectangle.
  6. Use a round biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits. Place them on the prepared baking sheet, making sure they touch each other for soft sides.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Remove from the oven and brush the tops with melted butter.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!
