  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk cold and shaken
  • 1 cup unsalted butter cold and cut into cubes
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and grease a cast- iron skillet or an oven-safe baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well. Add the cold butter and use a pastry cutter to combine the cold butter and the flour mixture. Do not overwork the dough, you want the mixture to resemble coarse crumbs.
  • Add the buttermilk and mix until well combined but do not over mix too much. You want to be able to still see butter chunks throughout the dough.
  • Flour your work surface, and place the dough on the work surface. Sprinkle the dough with a tsp of flour and knead for 5 minutes. Roll the dough out to a 1-inch thickness sheet and cut with a floured biscuit cutter or glass.
  • Place the biscuits in the greased skillet and brush the tops with melted butter. Bake for 15 minutes. Broil for 1 minute. Enjoy warm!
