Time:
30 Minutes Prep
15 Minutes Bake
15 Minutes Cool
Yield:
12 to 15 biscuits
INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, frozen, plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/4 stick), melted

Stack of Biscuits
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Prepare two sheet pans: Line one with parchment paper and place a cooling rack on the other.
  2. In a large bowl, cut frozen butter into flour using a pastry blender.
  3. In the center of the flour mixture, make a fist-sized well and pour in buttermilk. Using your hands, knead the dough until it’s shaggy and sticky.
  4. Lightly flour a surface and a rolling pin. Place the dough on the surface and knead again.
  5. Roll dough into a ¾-inch-thick rectangle, then fold the dough in half. Repeat the rolling and folding process 3 to 4 times, until distinct layers have formed.
  6. Roll the dough one final time into a ½-inch-thick rectangle. Using a 2 ½-inch round cutter, cut biscuits and place on sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Reshape and roll dough scraps and cut into more biscuits until all the dough is used.
  7. Bake biscuits 12 to 15 minutes, until they’re cooked through and lightly browned on top.
  8. Remove biscuits from the oven and carefully move them to the cooling rack placed on the sheet plan. Brush biscuits with melted butter. Let cool 15 minutes before serving.
