Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits

Ingredients :

  • 2 cups White Lily Self-Rising flour. See my blog post for how to make SR flour if you only have all purpose.
  • 1/4 cup butter, frozen.
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk.
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted.

Directions :

  • Heat oven to 475*.
  • Place flour in a large bowl. Use your hands and work butter into flour until crumbs are the size of peas.
  • Make a well in the flour bowl and add buttermilk. Stir with fork just until flour is moistened.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface.
  • Gently roll dough with floured rolling pin until 1 inch thick.
  • Cut out biscuits using a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter or the rim of a cup.
  • Place biscuits in a greased cast iron pan where the edges touch. I used an 8” Lodge.
  • Reform the scrap dough to make additional biscuits.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
  • Brush the top of biscuits with melted butter.
