Nothing tastes quite like layer upon layer of flaky buttery biscuits served warm out of the oven. These easy biscuits are one of our favorite sides and go perfectly with any meal, savory or sweet! Add cheese or a sprinkle of sugar on top.

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, & salt in a large bowl.
  3. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter until mixture resembles large crumbs (about the size of a pea). Add in buttermilk and stir until moistened. (You may need about 2tbs more or less of the buttermilk).
  4. Lightly flour your surface and turn dough onto the surface. Knead gently just until dough holds together.
  5. Pat the dough and fold over a few times. Pat to 1″ thick and cut using a biscuit cutter.
  6. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden.
