- 1½ cup all purpose flour
- 1½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 5 tbsp unsalted butter cold
- ¾ cup buttermilk*
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
- ½ tsp garlic minced
Preheat the oven to 425 and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.
In a large mixing bowl (or food processor) add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and stir with a fork to combine.
Cut the cold butter into small cubes and add to the flour mixture. Using a pastry blender or forks cut the butter into the flour until there are no pieces bigger than a pea. (or can do this step in a food processor)
Pour in the buttermilk and stir until mixed.
Using a large spoon scoop the batter and place on the baking sheet. Leaving the batter not neatly rounded gives a more textured appearance to the biscuits when baked. Batter will make about 9 biscuits.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes until the biscuits are baked through. Allow to cool several minutes then remove from the pan and continue to cool on a wire cooling rack.
In a small bowl combine the melted butter and minced garlic. Brush onto the baked biscuits before serving.
Buttermilk: To make buttermilk substitute add 1 tbsp of white vinegar or lemon juice to milk. Let sit for several minutes until the milk thickens, then use in the recipe.
Storage: store leftover biscuits in a sealed container. At room temperature they will keep 1-2 days. In the refrigerator up to 1 week.
How to Freeze: after baking let the biscuits cool to room temperature. Wrap tightly in foil, then store in a freezer safe container. Use within 2 months. To thaw remove from the freezer, unwrap and let thaw at room temperature for about 1 hour. Can be reheated in the microwave or oven.
