Flakey Buttermilk Biscuits

Flakey Buttermilk Biscuits

  • 1 C Milk
  • 1 tbsp. Vinegar
  • 2 C Flour
  • 2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tbsp. Baking Powder
  • 6 tbsp. Butter, chilled, cut into small cubes
  • Pre heat the oven to 450 F. Mix the milk and vinegar in a bowl and let sit for 10 minutes to create buttermilk. Place the flour, salt, soda, powder into another bowl and whisk well. Place the butter into the dry ingredients, quickly smash the bits of butter into the flour using your fingers or a fork. Once you have pea sized pieces of butter in the flour mixture, slowly mix in the buttermilk mixture and stir until a dry dough forms.

    Place the dough onto a floured surface and lightly pat out into a 1 inch square, cut in half, stack on top of the first piece and pat down into another 1 inch square. Make sure you are very gentle with the dough. Repeat this 2 more times create the flakey texture.

    Pat the dough out into a 1 inch circle. Use a 2 inch floured cookie cutter or floured glass to cut out the biscuits, place them on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
