buttermilk biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits
  1. 2 and 1/2 cups (312g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)*
  2. 2 Tablespoons baking powder (yes, Tablespoons!)
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. very cold: 1/2 cup unsalted butter OR 6 Tbs lard
  5. 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons (270ml) cold buttermilk, divided
  6. 2 teaspoons honey
  7. optional for spreading: 2 Tablespoons melted butter + 1 Tablespoon honey
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F
  2. Place the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Stir combined.
  3. Add the cubed butter or lard and cut into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter.
  4. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Pour 1 cup of buttermilk on top, then the honey. Stir everything together until just about combined– do not overwork the dough. The dough will look like shreds and be very crumbly.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and gently mold it into a rough looking rectangle using your hands. Fold 4 times.
  6. Press until it’s about 3/4 inch thick and looks like you can make 8 three inch biscuits. Cut into 3-inch circles. Re-roll any scraps until you get those 8 biscuits. Arrange in a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Make sure they’re touching.
  7. Brush the tops with remaining buttermilk.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown on top.
  9. Remove from the oven and, if desired, brush with melted butter and honey mixture. Enjoy warm.
