Makes about 12 2 inch biscuits
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon +2 teaspoons baking powder
- 10 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2 tablespoon chunks
- 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
Heat oven to 425. Whisk together dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter to form a coarse crumb (pea sized bits of butter left). Add buttermilk - start with a cup because depending upon how wet your flour is - you may or may not need the rest. The dough should be a little bit crumbly, do not over mix! Gather dough into a ball and pat into a rectangle about a 1/2 inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter or thin rimmed glass to cut out dough. Arrange biscuits on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake until just golden, about 10 - 15 minutes. Serve hot - with butter and honey.
